Description: The final variant of the McDonnell Douglas Phantom II was the F-4J; an improved version of the
F-4B and was produced for the USMC and USN. There were approximately 520 airframe built
with the first operational flight taking place in 1966. The F-4J was provided with stronger landing
gear and modifications to the inner wings and tail. The F-4J also received the new J79-GE-10
engines providing 17,900 lbs of thrust.

VF-74 “Bedevilers” were the first USN squadron to be deployed with the F-4 Phantom II. In July
1961 VF-74 traded their Douglas Skyrays for the F4H-1/F-4B thereby becoming the “First In
Phantom”. During the next twenty years VF-74 would fly three variants of the Phantoms 13 times
on Mediterranean cruises and twice to SEA. In those twenty years 15777 spent time with other
squadrons but by 1981 returned to VF-74 and given the special scheme “20 years 1961 – 1981
First In Phantoms”. In 1984 15777 was sent to the bone yard.
