The Thunderflash was a photo reconnaissance version of the Thunderstreak with this aircraft being delivered to the USAF during December 1955. It served with the 171 TRS/191 TRG, Michigan ANG at Selfridge AFB, before being SOC in 1971 and placed on display at VFW 4434 at Belleville, MI. It is now part of the interesting Yankee Air Museum at YIP.
