Posting this for a friend of mine:

 

"On the lookout for the layout, dimensions of a brake chute for an F-4 (1/48 scale). I want to have one of my Spooks with a deployed chute but (except for pictures) not much to find around the interweb. Any help on my quest would be appreciated."

I believe it's very similar if not identical to this, as used on the Voodoo.

Edit: the header bar title of the .pdf file in the link says "F-4/F-101 deceleration parachute"

One of the things I absolutely loved about visiting Lambert airport back when, was watching the landing MOANG F-4's, dragging their chutes behind them as they decelerated and taxied back to the staging areas.

Indeed Kevin.

 

By rights, the 110th should now be sitting across Lambert Field with their F-23As.
