AOA Decals is back with a release which corrects the markings released by another source. This set covers F-4J 1555565 assigned to VMFA-334 as it appeared at Da Nang AB in 1968-69, Chu Lai AB in 1969, and subsequently at MCAS Iwakuni in 1969. Wearing VMFA-334's tailcode of WU, this is modex 5 (callsign Lovebug 5).
