One of the most famous and easily recognized fighter aircraft of the post-WWII era was the 
McDonnell F-4 Phantom II. This aircraft was developed as a private venture by the aircraft 
company but was soon ordered by the USN as a carrier-based attack aircraft. Its first flight took 
place on May 27, 1958 and it entered active service in December 1960. It wasn’t long after the 
F-4B appeared that a fly-off was set up with USAF front-line fighters. It was no contest, the F-4 
performed so well that the USAF ordered their own variant, the F-4C. As time went on, the F-4 
evolved into well over a dozen variants.

There have been 5 USN Aviation squadrons to either use the designation VF-84 or use the 
name and insignia of the Jolly Roger. It all began back on January 1 1943 with the creation of 
VF-17. In 1959 with the disestablishment of VF-61 that wore the skull and cross bones at that 
time the name and insignia was moved to VF-84 under Roger Hedrick. VF-84 was flying the 
F8U-2 Crusader at that time before transitioning to the F-4B in 1964. In 1965 VF-84 deployed 
aboard the USS Independence in the Gulf of Tonkin where they flew 1,507 combat sorties over 
2,200 flight hours. VF-84 flew variants of the F-4 until 1976 when they left the Phantom II for the 
F-14 Tomcat. VF-84 was disestablished on October 1, 1995, but VF-103 Sluggers adopted the 
name and insignia of the Jolly Rogers.
