This F-4C-21-MC, S/N 64-0664, was manufactured by McDonnell Aircraft in St Louis, Missouri, and accepted by the USAF on March 18, 1965. It was originally retained by the manufacturer for flight testing, but in December 1966 was assigned to the Air Force Missile Development Center, Air Force Systems Command, at Holloman AFB, New Mexico. In May 1967 the aircraft went back to McDonnell Aircraft, then in March 1969 to the Air Force Armament Test Center at Eglin AFB, Florida. While there it was deployed to Edwards AFB, California, for a time. In October 1977 the plane went back to McDonnell-Douglas in St. Louis. In October 1980 this aircraft was transferred to the Air Force Flight Test Center at Edwards AFB. It traveled briefly back to McDonnell-Douglas in Tulsa, Oklahoma, then in August 1981 moved to the Ogden Air Logistics Center at Hill AFB. Here it flew flight test and weapons missions until March 1988 when it was dropped from active Air Force inventory and transferred to museum status.
