This QF-4E was delivered during the Vietnam War. Following two decades of service it was flown into retirement at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base and placed in long term storage. This airframe was later pulled from storage and converted to a remote controlled target. It was photographed being flown by a pilot in the front seat at the 2012 NAS Oceana Air Show.
