McDonnell Douglas RF-4C "Phantom II" 
S/N 65-0905

Hill Air Force Base had a long and involved history with the McDonnell Douglas F-4 family of aircraft beginning in January 1962, when the Ogden Air Materiel Area was designated as the System Support Manager for the Air Force's new F/RF-110A aircraft, later to be designated the F-4. In June 1966 Hill's maintenance shops received the first RF-4C, signaling the start of assigned reconnaissance maintenance work at OOAMA. The last six RF-4C aircraft departed Hill AFB and the USAF inventory in November 1995, bound for the Spanish Air Force. This marked the close of the Air Force's long history with the F-4 family of aircraft.

This RF-4C, s/n 65-905, was manufactured by McDonnell Aircraft in St. Louis, Missouri, and gained by the USAF on 24 Aug 1966. In August 1966 it was assigned to the 67th Tactical Reconnaissance Wing, Tactical Air Command, at Mountain Home AFB, Idaho. In October 1967 the aircraft moved to the 18th Tactical Fighter Wing, Pacific Air Forces, at Kadena AB, Japan. The following month it went to the 432nd Tactical Reconnaissance Wing (PACAF) at Udorn RTAFB, Thailand. 

In September 1969 this aircraft was transfered to the Ogden Air Logistics Area at Hill AFB for flight test support. The plane is now awaiting restoration for future placement in a four-ship missing man formation at the museum's front entrance.
