Phantom appears to be BuNO 152267

According to Baugher

upgraded to F-4N. SOC Apr 14, 1982. Currently preserved in Dallas, Texas. When it went to
the Army Reserve, it was towed to a forest area near Temple, TX. NMNA at Pensacola took charge of all
Navy preserved aircraft.

I'm sure we covered this already: Temple, TX and visible on Google Earth. Can't find the thread but the F-4 info above agrees with my recollection.

There was indeed a thread about them a few months back. Seem to remember they were not that far from housing and well known?

...and after seeing that attraction, we can take our banana seat bikes and steel wheel skateboards over to Suicide Hill to have some vintage fun! :lol: Remember to reserve some energy for the zebra firecracker holding contest and the BB-gun war! After the wounded get out of ER there will be BBQ at Uncle Andy's...Ahhh, our visits to my cousins in Temple back in the day...good clean fun... :D

Seems a little odd these are around, given the concerted effort the Navy made in grinding up the surviving non-preserved Tomcats, lest spares somehow reach the IRIAF through a wormhole or something equally implausible.
