RoKAF F-4D Phantom II. And it's drag chute.

Missed this bit of news till now. After 41 years of service with the Republic of Korea Air Force, the McDonnell Douglas F-4D Phantom II has been retired from RoKAF service in a decommissioning ceremony held at the 11th Fighter Wing's base at Daegu, South Korea.

The RoKAF still operates the later F-4E variant along with a handful of RF-4C photo-reconnaissance Phantoms.
