The McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II is a tandem two-seat, twin-engine, all-weather, long-range supersonic jet interceptor and fighter-bomber originally developed for the United States Navy by McDonnell Aircraft. It first entered service in 1961 with the Navy. Proving highly adaptable, it was also adopted by the United States Marine Corps and the United States Air Force, and by the mid-1960s had become a major part of their air arms. Primary Role: Interceptor, Fighter-Bomber.
The No. 74 Squadron “Tiger Squadron” existed from 1917 until the 1990s. The Squadron had been reformed at RAF Wattisham in 1984 and operated the F-4J until January 1991. McDonnell Douglas F-4J Phantom ZE-353 was former USN 153785 and was delivered to Wattisham on October 4, 1984. In 1991 74 Squadron exchanged their F-4Js for surplus FGR.2 Phantoms and on February 20, 1991 the aircraft moved to Manston Fire School and was finally scrapped in July 2001. The No. 74 Squadron disbanded in October 1992.
