The F-4B is a tandem, two-seat, twin-engine, all-weather, long-range supersonic jet interceptor fighter/fighter-bomber originally developed for the United States Navy. Fighter Squadron 111 (VF-111), also known as the Sundowners, was the designation held by two U.S. Navy fighter squadrons from 1942 to 1995. The first squadron, initially designated VF-11, served as an active Pacific Fleet Fighter Squadron until its disestablishment in 1959. At that time, another squadron assumed the designation until its disestablishment in 1995. In November 2006, VFC-13 Detachment Key West was re-designated as VFC-111, taking on the 'Sundowner' insignia and call sign.
