    Description

    The North American F-100 Super Sabre was a jetfighter aircraft that served with the United States Air Force (USAF) from 1954 to 1971 and with the Air National Guard (ANG) until 1979. The F-100 is one of those classics that rely on sheer power and good looks. F-100 Super Sabre first flew on May 25, 1953. The F-100D model of the Super Sabre was single-seat fighter-bomber, more advanced avionics, larger wing and tail fin, landing flaps. The F-100D first flew on January 24 1956, piloted by Dan Darnell. Late production models of the F-100D had the capability of being launched from remote areas in the manner of manned missiles. An F-100D Super Sabre became the first supersonic aircraft to be "boosted" airborne without use of a runway in successful Zero Length Launch (ZEL) tests at Edwards Air Force Base, California, in 1958. The F-100D Super Sabre featured many additional capabilities needed by the USAF, including a flapped wing, provisions for internal Electronic Counter-Measures (ECM) equipment and introduction of a Low-Altitude Bombing System (LABS).

    This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
