Photo Comment

This F-100 was delivered to the USAF in June 1957. It went on to be well-travelled, serving with deployments with various units all over the US as well as Turkey, Taiwan and Vietnam. It was retired to AMARC in Nov. 78 and converted to a drone ten years later. Fortunately, it was rescued by the NMUSAF Loan Program and is now on display at the MAPS Air Museum.
