      Out of stock
  McDonnell Douglas F-4C Phantom 11 in the superb livery of the 555th "Triple Nickel" Tactical Fighter Squadron, 9th Tactical Fighter Wing, based at Royal Thai airbase during the Vietnam war. The aircraft was piloted by WW2 ace Robin Olds during the Vietnam War on January 2nd 1967, when he shot down an enemy Mig 21. The aircraft was then used by another pilot, Lt Col Haeffner, to shoot down a MiG 17. It survived until 20 Nov 1967, when shot down by North Vienamese anti-aircraft artillery while attacking a surface to air missile site. Limited edition of only 1,210, intended primarily for US only issue. Displays superbly, has to be seen to be appreciated. Now very hard to find.

The F-4 Phantom II first entered US Military service in 1960. It was designed as a fleet defense fighter for the US Navy but by 1963 it was adopted as the US Air Force primary fighter-bomber. Despite the size and weight of this Cold War icon the F-4 broke 15 world records and continued to hold five of them until 1975. Produced from 1960 to 1981 there were 5,195 Phantom IIs manufactured. Eleven countries other than the USA had the Phantom II in their inventory.
