That one never served with the 81TFW. According to Joe Baugher it crashed near Bayport, Long Island, NY. on April 19, 1968 while assigned to the 479TFW.

66-7706 perhaps?
Nope, that one never served at Bent/Wood either. At the time it was assigned to the 49thTFW at Holloman.

Clutching at straws a bit here, but how about 65-0716?

Afternoon
I also attended this show. I have looked through my original log from the day, and I have the 4th. listed as 66-7615. But It is likely that I got the serial off of someone on my coach-the other F4's in the flypast that I have listed tally with the other 3 listed in EGVP's post.
Hope this helps-sorry if I have stirred the pot!!

I've also seen 66-7615 quoted so maybe it is the missing one.
