Bringing an F-4 to Northeast Oklahoma
After four years of teamwork, the F-4 committee and community finally brings its fighter jet home.
On October 10, 1972, a 29,535 lb fighter jet took to the skies for the very first time.
With the ability to move across the clouds as quickly as 1,485 miles-per-hour, she’d serve our nation’s military in all sorts of capacities in Germany and North Carolina, before being moved to California.
After spending early retirement in Arizona, F-4 Phantom #247 was put back to work at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico.
Now, almost 50 years after that first flight, she’s found a home right here in the 4-States.
