On April 16, 1972, four F-4D Phantom IIs were on a combat patrol over North Vietnam. The third aircraft, 66-7550, was crewed by pilot Major Dan Cherry and WSO Jeff Feinstein. The four F-4s encountered several MiG-19 and MiG-21s and after a five minute dogfight Cherry and Feinstein scored their first aerial victory. The MiG-21 pilot was Lt. Nguyen Hong My, who survived the war and on April 16, 2009 was the guest of honor at the public opening of the display of #66-7550 in the Aviation Heritage Park, Bowling Green, Kentucky.

The McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom is a two-seat, twin-engine supersonic jet fighter originally developed for the US Navy. Proving highly adaptable, it became a major part of the air wings of the US Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force. The F-4 Phantom was used extensively by all three of these services in the Vietnam War, serving as the principal fighter/bomber for the U.S. Navy and US Air Force as well as being important in ground-attack and reconnaissance roles. F-4 Phantom II production ran from 1958 until 1981, with a total of 5,195 built.

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 Eagle and F-16 Fighting Falcon in the U.S. Air Force; the F-14 Tomcat and F/A-18 Hornet in the U.S. Navy and the F/A-18 in the Marine Corps. It remained in use by the U.S. in the reconnaissance and Wild Weasel roles in the 1991 Gulf War, finally leaving service in 1996. The Phantom was also operated by the air forces of eleven other nations.
