As menacing thunder clouds retreat beyond thrills, a USAF F-100D
readies for a practice bombing mission from Nellis Air Force Base to
one of the nearby ranges. North American's Super Sabre, first of the
Century Series fighters and the USAF's first true supersonic fighter,
began operational service in 1954. Progressing in models "A" through
"D", the F-100 continued to fly through the late '60s and was used
effectively in ground support and "Wild Weasel" roles in Vietnam.
