201 Squadron - The One

The 201 squadron was officially established in September 1969, and was the first squadron to operate the F-4E Phantom. A month after its creation, the squadron took part in operations against SAM sites near Abu Sueir, and also created sonic booms over Cairo in November of the same year. In 1989, the 201 squadron was the first to have its aircraft upgraded to the Kurnass 2000 specification. During the early 1990s, Israel began to place many of its F-4s into storage or in museums. As of 2006, the 201 squadron was considered inactive.
