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.
McDonnell Douglas F-4J Bu.No 155890 served with VF-143 “Pukin’ Dogs” as NK-114 in 1969 into 1970 before transferring to VF-21 “Freelancers” as NE-106 later that year. In 1977 155890 went to VMFA-212 “Lancers” as WD-10. In early 1965 and again in 1972 VMFA-212 deployed to Vietnam returning to Hawaii both times. From 1974 until 1987 operated from Japan before retiring their F-4s for the new F/A-18C “Hornet”. In 1985 155890 moved to VMFA-251 “Thunderbolts” DW-05 but in 1987 it was retired and displayed at the Estrella Warbirds in California as VMFA-333 “Shamrocks”.
