Phantom F-4C 65-777 at Lakenheath, 2nd September 2016; Richard E Flagg

Displayed to dramatic effect in the Liberty Wing Memorial Park within RAF Lakenheath, 63-7419 is painted to represent an F-4 once based at Lakenheath, 65-777. If you want to get a look at her yourself, you'll need to arrange a base visit or possibly have a look at the memorial park during the yearly bazaar (normally advertised locally around Easter time). You certainly won't be able to get a look at her if you just turn up and ask, especially given the security state the base has been on since late 2001.

63-7419 is still on-site to this day and seems to be very well looked after as the photo above shows!
