This F-4 Lightning is believed to be 41-2144. Originally thought to have been photographed at Townsville in July 1942, the photo was more likely taken sometime after December 1942 when 41-2144 was delivered to the SWPA. The aircraft carries the number "44" on the nose and the digits "2" and "44" can be seen on the tail. The well-worn appearance is typical of aircraft painted in Haze Paint.
