Last Luftwaffe F-4F Phantom flight

Saturday marked the end of service for the F-4F Phantom in German Luftwaffe service. The Phantom which entered service in 1973 was originally only to be in service only 15 years Saturday marking their 40th year of flying.

The F-4 are still flying in the Air Forces of Korea, Japan, Greece, and Turkey. Not bad for an aircraft that was designed in the 50's and went into service with the USN in Dec 1960. The total number of Phantoms built was 5,195 a total that will never be equaled by another military aircraft.
