Photo Comment

The Thunderflash was the first jet to be developed specifically to fill a reconaissance role. The RF-84 had its air-intake ducts relocated to the wing roots and the nose elongated and enclosed to permit installation of camera and electronic equipment. This example is now on display at the super Turkish AF museum on the Southern boundary of IST.
