In 1973 the Japan Air Self-Defense Force began receiving the first of 154 F-4EJ Phantoms. 138 of these aircraft were produced under license by Mitsubishi who built the last F-4 Phantom II. In 1984 an F-4EJ modernization program labeled “KAI” was begun. The J.A.S.D.F 8th SQ “Black Panthers”, 3rd AW is one of 2 squadrons stationed at Misawa Air Base. In 2003 the Air Combat Meet held at Misawa was won by F-4EJ Kai 57-8354 from the 8th Squadron. The ACM is similar to the NATO Tiger meet.

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.
