In the 1970s South Korea felt a possible security risk from North Korea and decided to acquire Northrop F-5Es and McDonnell Douglas F-4E Phantoms to bolster their defense capabilities as a deterrent to aggression. Ex-USAF F-4Ds were procured in the late 1960s and in 1978 the first of the new built F-4Es began to arrive. F-4E 60-499 c/n 4972 was assigned to the 152nd / 17th FW at Cheongju. Around 2008 the RoKAF began to reduce their reliance on the F-4E Phantom IIs and replacing them with the new F-35.Opening canopies

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.
