Originally an F-4EJ like all later RF-4EJs, so a fighter and not a reconnaisance plane, this one was delivered as 77-8397. Upon conversion, all were reserialled to have a 6 as the first digit behind the dash, following JASDF serial system standards.

Returning from another mission with the LOROP (Long Range Oblique Photography) reconnaisance pod. As the RF-4EJ is a converted F-4EJ that kept the cannon, some external device was always needed to carry out its primary task.

47-6901 was the first of 14 Recce Phantoms originally acquired directly from McDonnell Douglas for the JASDF. In the 1990's, 17 F-4E's were modified to RF-4EJ in addition. This airframe entered service in 1974 and remained in flying condition till the squadron ceased operations on March 9, 2020. It was one of at least three RF-4EJ painted in this blue Marine camouflage.

Delivered new to the JASDF in 1975, this RF-4EJ was the 2nd last of a batch of 14 initially ordered by Japan. In the 1990's, an additional 17 F-4EJ's were converted to (R)F-EJ Kai and joined the ranks of Hikotai 501 based in Hyakuri. The japanese reconnaissance Phantoms wore different camouflage schemes over the years, making them famous among photographers.
