The McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II is regarded as one of the most successful fighter designs of all time. An American two-seat, twinjet, all weather interceptor, fighter/ fighter-bomber aircraft, its first flight occurred on May 27, 1958. With top speeds more than twice the speed of sound, the F-4 established 16 speed, altitude and time-to climb records. An all-around performer the F-4 Phantom II simultaneously served the USAF, USN and the USMC, the first American aircraft to do so, while also serving in approximately 11 other countries. Fighter Squadron 111 (VF-111), also known as the Sundowners is perhaps the most famous Pacific fleet Squadron with an iconic insignia.
During the Vietnam war, VF-111 made seven deployments, flying over 12, 500 combat missions. In 1971, VF-111 joined CVW-15 (NL), on board CVA-43 USS coral sea, and transitioned to the F-4 Phantom II.
During this deployment lt Weigand and lt JG Freckleton downed a MiG-17 on March 6, 1972 near the Tonkin Gulf. This die-cast metal airplane PS5384-3 comes in 1: 155 scale with plastic stand and is approximately 4 7/8 inches long with 3 3/16 inch wingspan.
