The McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom was one of the most versatile jet aircraft ever produced. Flown by the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Air Force pilots during the Vietnam era, it was extremely capable, reliable, fast and rugged. It was able to carry large weapons loads from aircraft carriers at sea as well as forward operating bases while still retaining its air-to-air combat
capabilities. Several allied nations flew this aircraft as well. More than 5,057 phantoms were produced between 1959 and 1979.
The Phantom Phlyers Association has been formed to educate the public about the role of this aircraft and the dedication, sacrifice and accomplishments of the aircrews that flew it.
The Phantom Phlyers Association will raise funds to be utilized exclusively for the purpose of leasing
Ready Room Six in the USS Midway Museum; U.S.S. Midway. The museum will be paid a fee for the use of this space. The Phantom Phlyers Association will acquire the materials and pay for the professional services necessary to restore Ready Room Six to the condition “as it was” during the Vietnam era. Once the restoration has been completed, the funds will be used to renew the lease, maintain the improvements as well as the associated facilities and to conduct on-going educational programs for museum visitors and groups such as students, veterans or any member of the public. These educational programs will include video programs, historic films and lectures.
