North American F-100F Super Sabre
@Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum, McMinnville, OR
A Super Sabre photographed on my second trip to this museum. Like many of the Century Series of fighters, the Super Sabre is a very cool looking plane and I am always pleased to have the opportunity to photograph one. The F-100 was the first Air Force fighter to exceed the speed of sound in level flight and was lso used by the USAF Thunderbirds for 12 years. The two-seat Foxtrot model was used for the MISTY missions flown during the Vietnam War. With two pilots to a plane, the MISTYs’ objective was to disrupt supplies and equipment on the Ho Chi Minh Trail, the main supply route between North and South Vietnam.
