In the early 1960s the USAF developed the RF-4C out of the F-4 Phantom II fighter to reinforce the RF-101 in its tactical reconnaissance role. Beginning in 1964, McDonnell Douglas produced 499-RF-4C aircraft for the [U.S.] Air Force. Capable of photo reconnaissance at high or low altitude, day or night, the RF-4 saw service beginning in Southeast Asia in 1965 through the Gulf War in 1991.

Goodfellow's RF-4C (S/N 69-0367) entered the USAF inventory in 1970 at Mountain Home AFB, transferred to Bergstrom AFB in 1971 and to Zweibrucken AB, Germany, in 1973. After returning to the United States in 1987 and to Bergstrom in 1988, the aircraft was dropped from the inventory and placed here in static display in July 1990, where it recognizes Goodfellow's crucial intelligence training mission.

This aircraft is on loan from the US Air Force Museum system
