My father, David Lewis, was the head of the F-4 Development in the 1950s. He want on to become President of McDonnell in the 1960s. From his bio...

In 1952, McDonnell's Chief of Aerodynamics, Dave Lewis was appointed by CEO J.S. McDonnell to be the company's Preliminary Design Manager. The first of its kind in the aerospace industry, the group had no specific target other than to learn and understand all of the rapid technical advances being made in aeronautics, airframes, and engines.

With no new aircraft competitions on the horizon, internal studies concluded that the Navy had the greatest need for a new and different aircraft type, an Attack Fighter. At the time, the Navy had separate Fighter and Attack branches, each with separate systems and operational requirements. After many iterations and various "enemy capability" assumptions, an "unwanted" Attack Fighter was presented to the Navy. The McDonnell design called for two engines. The primary air-to-air armament was provided by the new Sparrow III missiles semi-submerged in the fuselage. The air-to-ground armament was to be as many bombs as could be carried on stations that would be mounted under the wings and aft of the Sparrow stations on the fuselage. No guns were offered. It took two long years of hard work with the Bureau of Aeronautics and the Naval Air Warfare Division in the Pentagon, but the F-4 was sold with pretty much the same configuration as was originally proposed.

My father was in the marine corps for four years and worked on the f4 phantom everyday.He tells me so many stories about how they amazed him .I personally think the f4 was a revolutionary jet for its time,and if you sent it out again today it would still perform just as good as it did thirty years ago.
