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.
In mid-1968 the 388th TFW stationed at Korat, RTAFB transitioned from the Republic F-105 Thunderchief to the McDonnell Douglas F-4E. F-4E 67-0309 wears a red star on the engine splitter signifying a MiG kill but it was never a confirmed victory since there was a ceasefire in place. From the 469th TFS/388th TFW the aircraft moved to the 15th TFW and then on to the 94th TFS/1st TFW. Eventually after a complete of other moves the aircraft was sold to the Egyptian AF in 1980 as 7828.
