The country insignia is that of Japan. Note production serial number, 87-8409, 25 years of production by McDonald Douglas (now Boeing) - over 5000 built. Obviously Japan was ahead of their time with digital camouflage - now widely used. Remember what the Captain said when interviewed in SEA about the Phantom's performance. Had the US Phantom been given the upgraded P&W engines it would have been a match for the vertical performance of the F15 which is how in a close in dogfight the F15 could escape. Carl - F4 WSO '71-'83.

Loved to watch these birds. The local Reserve guys at WPAFB were real pros with these. I thought the low smoke engines for the recees might save them for awhile, but active flying in AF is over.
