The 101st Fighter Squadron of the Navy became the first to be outfitted
with the F-4J in 1966, and the Marines in 1967. It broke record after record,
including top-speed, altitude, and time-to-climb. On September 11, 1972, The
F-4J shot down a MiG-21 near Hanoi, in the Vietnam War. That was the only time
a MiG was downed by a U.S. Marine aircraft. The F-4J remained with the Marines
until 1991. Battling in five major conflicts, spanning over three decades, the
Phantom II earned a special place in warplane history.
