Product Description

HISTORY CHANNEL MODERN FIGHTER LEGENDS COLLECTION: Corgi McDonnell F-4C Phantom II, USAF, Michigan Air National Guard, Selfridge ANGB, 1980

The first production F-4C (62-12199) took off on its maiden flight on May 27, 1963. The factory designation was Model 98DE. The F-4C was externally almost identical to the naval F-4B, even retaining the folding wings and arrestor gear. However, it differed internally from the F-4B. It was fitted with dual controls, as the Air Force intended to fly it as a two-pilot aircraft. Low-pressure tires were fitted, which required thicker wheels which, in turn, required deeper wheel wells which resulted in a slight bulge having to be added above and below the inner wing panels. An anti-skid wheel system was fitted. The probe-and-drogue midair refueling system of the Navy version was replaced by a boom-type refueling system with a refueling receptacle being mounted on top of the fuselage behind the rear cockpit. The backseat crew member (who was now also a pilot) had new consoles, a lowered panel for improved forward visibility, and a relocated radar tracking handle, attack switches, and other refinements. Ex-USAF F-4Cs first began to reach units of the Air National Guard in 1972. In addition, they served in the air defence role from 1978 onwards with seven ANG fighter interceptor squadrons and with a air defence training squadron. Most of the ANG's F-4Cs were replaced by later-model F-4Ds and Es (as well as by F-15s and F-16s) during the mid- to late-1980s. The 171st Fighter Interceptor Squadron received their F-4C's in 1978 being the first ANG unit to transition from F-106 Delta Darts. The squadron went on to operate F-4D's and then in 1990 re-equipped with F-16A Fighting Falcons, which it flies today. The last ANG squadron to fly the F-4C, the 123rd FIS of the Oregon ANG, exchanged its F-4Cs for F-15As in the spring of 1989. As they left ANG service, the F-4Cs were retired to the boneyards at Davis-Monthan AFB or were converted into target drones. None remain in service with any ANG units today.
