McDonnell Douglas F-4EJ Kai #07-8428 is assigned to the JASDF 302 Hikotai (Tactical Fighter Squadron). The squadron is scheduled to move to Misawa AB in 2019 and start receiving the new F-35A Lightning II. To mark the end of the 302 Hikotai using the F-4, #07-8428 was given a special white paint scheme decorated with a large red eagle along the fuselage. The squadrons logo is a tri-color white tailed eagle with the shape of the body representing the 3, white tail 0 and blue wing 2.

Starting in 1973 the Japan Air Self-Defense Force received 154 F-4EJs that were based on the USAF F-4 Phantom II. 138 of these aircraft were manufactured under license by Mitsubishi who produced the last F-4. 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.

The McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II is a two-seat twin-engine jet fighter originally developed for the U.S. Navy in the 1950s. Proven to be highly adaptable, it also became a major part of the air wings of the U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Air Force. The Phantom was used extensively by all three of these services in the Vietnam War, serving as the principal fighter / bomber for the Navy and Air Force and in ground-attack and reconnaissance roles. The F-4 Phantom II was also sold to and operated by the armed forces of 11 other nations.

The F-4 Phantom entered service in 1960 and continued to form a major part of U.S. military air power throughout the 1970s and 1980s, being gradually replaced by more modern aircraft such as the F-15 and F-16 in the U.S Air Force; the F-14 and F/A-18 in the U.S. Navy and the F/A-18 in the U.S Marine Corps. The F-4 was used in the reconnaissance and Wild Weasel roles in the 1991 Gulf War, finally leaving service in 1996. It was produced from 1958 to 1981 with a total of 5,195 built in several variants.
