Phantom F-4C 63-7699 at Baginton, 20th June 2008; author

A genuine MiG-killer, this F-4 served with the 123rd Fighter Interceptor Squadron and the 142nd FIG (Oregon ANG). Seeing action over Vietnam, that was where a MiG-21 of the NVNAF met her, and didn't go home to tell the tale! After ANG service she was retired to BDR duties in the UK and was finally loaned to the Midland Air Museum by the USAF Museum. Repainted from her ANG colours back into a South-East Asia camo scheme, she had begun looking a bit faded by 2007 so another repainted was started, as you can see from the photo.
