That is an RF-4B and it brings back memories...

I was an Aerial Reconnaissance Camera Systems Technician while in the Marines 1981-1990 and worked on the film cameras flown in the RF-4Bs of VMFP-3. Several cameras were mounted in the extended nose cone of the RF-4B, shooting through a number of windows (the black trapezoid shapes on side in your photos along with an oblique forward looking window and windows on the bottom not seen in your shots).

VMCJ-2 was one of the three predecessor squadrons that were combined to form VMFP-3, brief history of the RF-4B with USMC can be found here:

Planes are one of my favorite things. Especially Military aircraft after serving 9 years in the Marines. I worked on equipment out of RF-4B's and F/A-18's

Bad shot from today, after it flew over by the time I rushed in a got my camera and back out it was quite a distance away and lining up for Paine Field. Pretty heavy crop and heat distortion. I've been trying to get a clean shot of one of these, will keep working on it.

Nice shot.

From Offutt AFB. About 1/3 of the base was flooded. They moved some of their planes to Lincoln. Where was this one?

Thank you,
This one was on final approach to Davis-Monthan AFB two weeks ago. It was on static display for the airshow.

The view at FL380. We were westbound to San Diego from DC, and I had a window seat. We were at 38,000 ft. I was taking photos, in part so I could "justify" keeping the window shade open. At one point there was a contrail off in the distance, headed generally westbound too, but then the contrail got big, and I could see the aircraft was turning and descending. This was done with the 24-105, the only lens I had with me. I could have easily used a much longer focal length lens. This is really zoomed and cropped, and it was never that close, but it was really pleasantly exciting to see.
