McDonnell Douglas RF-4EJ 57-6913 C/N 4639 was delivered in January 1975. The JASDF serial 
number system makes it possible to determine information concerning each aircraft. The first digit 
in the serial number is the last digit in the year of delivery; in this case it is 5 making the delivery 
year 1975. The second digit 7 identifies the aircraft as a Phantom and the third digit 6 identifies 
the aircraft as a Reconnaissance version. This aircraft was updated to KAI standards and 
belongs to the 501st Hikotai.

They are virtually identical except for the restricted equipment:
This included removal of the in-flight refueling receptacle that was later retrofitted, 
no leading edge slats, ground attack control equipment such as weapons and bomb 
delivery systems and the addition of modern electronic equipment including a data

reinstalled.
