The first production RF- 4C flew in May 1964. The RF- 4C was an unarmed recon variant
designed for information gathering. This variant is quite easy to recognize from other F-4
variants because of the distinctive nose. The larger nose was designed to accommodate radar,
sensors and flat windows for cameras.
During its years of service the RF-4C used two nose rounded camera bulge.
There were 503 RF- 4cs built with 499 being officially accepted by the USAF.
Phantom II RF-4C CR12-51/12-60 of the Spanish Air Force was formerly 65-0851 c/n 1352 of
the 165 TRS/123 TRW Kentucky ANG and was sold to Spain on January 11, 1989. The aircraft
was assigned to the 123 Escadron Titans. When Spain switched from the F-4E to the F-18
they considered replacing the RF-4Cs with Mirage F-1CRs but the deal was cancelled.
The last RF-4C flew in 2002 and were replaced by F-18As,
with a recce-pod attached making them E/F(R) -18A+.
