      F-4E Phantom II: Overview and Specifications

      The F-4E variant was an upgraded version of the C/D, featuring an extended nose and compact radar. These enhancements allowed for the installation of a 20mm M61A1 6-barrel 640-round Vulcan gun pod in the nose. With 1,387 aircraft produced over a 12-year period, the F-4E was the most popular variant and served in more air forces than any other Phantom II model.

      Notable Aircraft: USAF 65-0713 c/n 1761

      USAF 65-0713 c/n 1761 is significant for several reasons. Initially produced as an F-4D, it was modified to be the prototype F-4E equipped with an M-61 rotary cannon. However, missiles were deemed sufficient, and cannons weren't added to production models. Brigadier General Charles "Chuck" Yeager took his final flight as an active-duty USAF pilot in this aircraft. The plane also served as a testbed for the F-4G Wild Weasel and other testbeds throughout the 1970s and '80s. It is now on display at the AFFTC Museum, Edwards Air Force Base.
