Dec2020 PIX: final retirement JASDF Phantom F-4EJ's at Hyakuri...

Post by Stratofreighter »

...this one warrants its' own thread,
that's why it was not "buried" or "hidden/verstopt" in
https://www.scramble.nl/community/messageboard/84 .
Keep it in "Military News" please, thank you... :roll:

Contrary to popular belief, the JASDF F-4 retirement is as follows...

The last flight of 301 is tomorrow (10th) and the decommissioning ceremony is Monday 14th (dec2020....) . :!:

As stated, the previous ceremony was a celebration of the type’s service life, not the withdrawal.

JASDF 301SQ has "officially" announced
that they finished the operations of F-4EJ Kai Phantoms at Hyakuri AB and moved to Misawa AB.

This is the end of Japan's 50-year long tactical operations of the legendary fighter jet.

The # 7th Air Wing # 301st Squadron moved to #Misawa Air Base
(Misawa City, Aomori Prefecture) on December 15, 2nd year of Reiwa.

With this reorganization, the operation of the # F4EJ reform in the Air Defense Command has ended,
and the 7th Air Wing has become a combat wing that operates only # F2 fighters.

Too bad!
But I'm glad that I had the chance to see them in 2017 and 2019.
