F-4C Phantom #63-7647 was delivered to the 8th TFW in 1964 and deployed in August 1965 to Korat RTAFB, Thailand. During the Vietnam War the aircraft served with several squadrons. On June 5, 1967, while with the 555th TFS, Major R.M. Pascoe and Captain N.E. Wells scored the war’s last MiG kill. After several more moves the aircraft was transferred to the 199th TFS/154th TFG of the Hawaii ANG in 1978, where it remained until 1987 before going to the Oregon ANG 114th TFTS/142nd FIG. In 1989 F-4C Phantom #63-7647 was retired to the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum, McMinnville, Oregon.

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.
