  F-4 Phantom II
The F-4 Phantom II is a two-place (tandem), supersonic, long-range, all-weather fighter-bomber built by McDonnell Douglas Corporation.
First flown in May 1958, the Phantom II originally was developed for U.S. Navy fleet defense and entered service in 1961.
Phantom II production ended in 1979 after over 5,000 had been built--more than 2,800 for the USAF, about 1,200 for the Navy and Marine Corps, and the rest for friendly foreign nations.
