The U.S. Air Force 57th Fighter-Interceptor Squadron 'The Black Knights of Keflavik' were based at NAS Keflavik, Iceland from 1954 until March 1, 1995 when they were deactivated. In 1973 the squadron received their first F-4C Phantom IIs with F-4Es going to Vietnam. In March 1978 the 57th FIS began trading their F-4C variant for twelve newer F-4Es. In 1984 it was announced that the 57th FIS would receive the F-15 Eagle. F-4E Phantom II #66-0300 was later sold to Turkey.

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.
