The Society collects articles, books (in the form of PDFs), extracts, recordings and videos related to the F-4. It is an eclectic collection.
NAVAIR 01-245DB-2-1.2 This manual shows the proper location of decals and stencils for Navy F-4s and is an excellent resource for those restoring and maintaing F-4s on display, as well as those who create models. It is a large volume which we have split into three parts.
USAF TO 1-1-4 This tech order covers the USAF Marking layout up through 1998.

Roger Locher tapes on his rescue. Two 45 min audio recordings of Roger Locher talking about his rescue, the Oyster1B SAR. Interesting firsthand story of 23 days of escape and evasion in NVN. You should be able to listen to them online. Alas both tapes appear to be missing a few minutes at the end. IF anyone has the full recording please let us know. We also would like to know just when and where these recordings were originally made. They could have been from a presentation he made to a group. (8/1/10)
AMARG For years we were able to keep an up to date chart of the F-4's at AMARG/AMARC at Davis Monthan. In 2009 that data was no longer available. This link provides the last set of data we had as of April, 2009. AMARG/AMARC Listing.
Sonny Billingsly has provided us a new 86 page listing of the full inventory at the 309th, current as of May 2014: AMARG 5/2014 Inventory.
