McDonnell Douglas F-4D Phantom II 66-7709 was delivered to the U.S. Air Force 432 TFW/13th TFS in 1967. During the Vietnam War the aircraft was assigned to the 433rd TFS/8th TFW, the 336th TFS/ 4th TFW, 49th TFW and 36th TFW. In 1979 the aircraft moved to the 12th TFS/18th TFW before transferring to the 457th TFS/ 301st TFG in 1984 and the 465th TFS/507th TFG in 1986. In April of 1988 66-7709 was transferred to the RoKAF as one of the last of the 92 F-4Ds transferred to South Korea.

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.
