Fighter Squadron 111 (VF-111), also known as the Sundowners is perhaps the most famous Pacific fleet squadron with an iconic insignia. During the Vietnam War, VF-111 made seven deployments, flying over 12,500 combat missions. In 1971, VF-111 joined the CVW-15 (NL), on board CVA-43 USS Coral Sea, and transitioned to the F-4 Phantom II. During this deployment LT. Weigand and LT JG Freckleton downed a MiG-17 on March 6, 1972 near the Tonkin Gulf.
The F-4B Phantom II is a diecast metal airplane model. It features authentic paint scheme with pad printed markings. Display stand included.
