McDonnell Douglas F-4E Phantom II 90307, No. 6 Squadron, RAAF. 1/72 Scale from Hobby Masters, HA1987


Due to delays with the F-111 the RAAF leased 24 F-4Es from the USAF. Phantom II 69-0307 c/n 3851 took its maiden flight on June 29, 1970 and arrived at RAAF Amberley 82 Wing No. 6 Squadron in late September 1970. The aircraft was assigned an RAAF A-69 number for admin purposes but only the USAF registration appeared on the aircraft. On June 6, 1973 the aircraft was returned to the USAF and converted to an F-4G “Wild Weasel”; serving in Vietnam before being converted to a QF-4G drone (AF-134) and destroyed June 11, 1997.
