    Hobby Master 1/72 Air Power Series HA19014 McDonnell Douglas F-4N Phantom II 152323, VMFA-531 "Gray Ghosts", USS Coral Sea One of the most famous and easily recognized fighter aircraft of the post-WWII era was the McDonnell F-4 Phantom II. This aircraft was developed as a private venture by the aircraft company but was soon ordered by the USN as a carrier-based attack aircraft. Its first flight took place on May 27, 1958 and it entered active service in December 1960. It wasn�t long after the F-4B appeared that a fly-off was set up with USAF front-line fighters. It was no contest, the F-4 performed so well that the USAF ordered their own variant, the F-4C. As time went on, the F-4 evolved into well over a dozen variants. McDonnell Douglas F-4 15232 was produced as a �B� variant originally serving as the VF-14 �Top Hatters� CAG aircraft. Prior to transferring to the VMFA-531 �Grey Ghosts� in 1976 152323 was upgraded to an �N� variant. In November 1979 VMFA-531 deployed to the Indian Ocean for a 102 day deployment on board the USS Coral Sea. After supporting the Iranian Crisis VMFA-531 returned to El Toro in June 1980. On May 29, 1984 the �Grey Ghosts� received new F/A-18 Hornets and the last Marine F-4N was retired in 1985.
