The McDonnell Douglas F-4 was the main multipurpose aircraft for the US Military for 20 years. The F-4E variant was an improved version of the C/D with an elongated nose and compact radar. These two things made it possible to install a 20mm M61A1 6 barrel 640 round Vulcan gun pod in the nose. The F-4E was the most produced variant with 1387 aircraft being made over its 12 year production period. The “E” also equipped more air forces than any other variant of the Phantom II.

On Friday May 5, 2017 the Hellenic Air Force (HAF) 348th Tactical reconnaissance Squadron was officially disbanded at Larissa AB. To mark the occasion RF-4E 7499 was given a special paint scheme It had “The End Of The Film” in English printed on the starboard side of the fuselage and Greek on the port side; the end of using film, giving way to digital. This aircraft was former USAF 69-7499 , ex German 35+52 that had been the Aufklarungsgeschwader 52 “Black Panther” in 1994.
