F4H-1F s/n 145310 was delivered to the U.S. Navy in 1959 as the 11th pre-production Phantom. It was part of Operation Sageburner which set the low-altitude speed record at 902 mph at 125 feet as part of the U.S. Navy's 50th Anniversary of Naval Aviation in 1961. This is the only flight capable Phantom that can be owned, operated, and flown by a private individual/organization.
