Product description

The McDonnell Douglas F-4 was the main multipurpose aircraft for the US Military for 20 years. The F-4E variant was an improved version of the C/D with an elongated nose and compact radar. These two things made it possible to install a 20mm M61A1 6 barrel 640 round Vulcan gun pod in the nose. The F-4E was the most produced variant with 1387 aircraft being made over its 12 year production period. The “E” also equipped more air forces than any other variant of the Phantom II.

Israeli F-4E “584” originally was serial U.S. 71-0234 with c/n 4222. On July 18, 1972 it was delivered to the IDF as “184” but when it was modernized to Kurnass 2000 standards it became aircraft “584”. The black lettering on the side of the aircraft is 2000 Kurnass in Hebrew and the red tail signifies the 201st Squadron “The One”. Iftach Spector had 12 IDF victories, 8 in Mirage IIIs and at least one of his four F-4 victories in this particular aircraft.
