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.

VF-143 “Pukin’ Dogs” adopted their insignia in 1953. One of several stories goes that the 
squadron commander’s wife said the insignia reminded her of a pukin’ dog which the pilots 
liked so the named was born. The second unit to be named VF-143 “Pukin’ Dogs” came about 
on June 20, 1962 and was equipped with F4H-1 Phantom II (later re-designated F-4B Phantom 
II). F-4B 151444 was one of the B variants that were upgraded to N’s and joined the USN in
