Starting in 1973 the Japan Air Self-Defense Force received 154 F-4EJ Phantoms that were based on the USAF F-4E. 138 of these aircraft were manufactured under license by Mitsubishi who produced the last F-4 Phantom II several changes were made to the F-4E to make it an F-4EJ. Basically it had any offensive weapons removed but eventually these restrictions were lifted and the aircraft were updated with missiles and the latest electronic equipment.

McDonnell Douglas F-4E 73-1172 was produced as c/n 4698 and assigned to the 4TFW / 335 TFS and spent time as 4th TFW Wing Commander’s aircraft at Seymour Johnson AFB, North Carolina. The 4th TFW began as the 4th Fighter-Interceptor Wing in January 1950 and the 4th TFW in 1958. The 4th TFW flew the F-4 Phantom II from 1967 until 1990 when it was phased out by the F-15. F-4E 73-1172 was sent to AMARC on January 10, 1991 wearing the Hill Grey camouflage and converted to a QF-4E numbered AF282.
