Jagdgeschwader 71 "Richthofen", based at Wittmund, Germany, celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2009. For the occasion F-4F 37+03 was given a special paint scheme. On the starboard side of the tail a red Fokker Dr.1 Dreidecker and on the port side a portrait of Manfred Freiherr von Richthofen, "Red Baron". On the top and bottom of the aircraft wings is a black 5 on the left and a black 0 on the right. The F-4 37+03 c/n 4342 was the third of 175 delivered to what was then West Germany.

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.
