F-4C Phantom

This U.S. Air Force F-4C Phantom Jet Fighter was flown by General "Chappie" James, Tuskegee University graduate and first Black Four-Star General in the U.S. Armed Services, on his last combat mission—Operation Bold—over Southeast Asia. It flies at Mach 2 (2000 MPH) and carries a payload of 16,000 pounds.

This plane was retired from the active Air Force inventory on 21 September 1986. It was donated to Tuskegee University by the U.S. Air Force with the assistance of Air University at Maxwell Air Force Base, Alabama.
