This aircraft painted for the very special occasion of the 50th birthday of the Phantom and the 30 years service of the Hellenic RF-4E with 348TRS.

The colors

  • camouflage black FS37038

  • dark green FS 34079

  • medium green FS 34102

The RF-4E is a variation of the F-4E fighter and differs from it in terms of snapshots on the nose, with the possibility of looking back and forth. Its main mission is recognition before and after the attack of a target. The completion of the receipt of eight new RF-4Es in 1980 has dramatically upgraded the PA's recognition capabilities.

Their small number was completed in 1993 by 27 used RF-4E from West German stocks. Our construction concerns an anniversary aircraft of 348 Squadron "Eyes".  RF-4E have been retired from Hellenic Air Force at 5 of May 2017.
