Former F-100 pilots fly the plane one last time and tell a few Vietnam war stories. The F-100 in seven years of ground support missions in Vietnam flew 360,283 sorties, more that all P-51 sorties in WWII and more than all other fighter plane sorties combined in Vietnam.

Thanks for posting this Winston! My dad worked on the "D" model- We had a chance to drop by the Rantoul Aviation Museum and, look at their F-100 before they closed their doors last year. That look in my Dad's eyes...going back to a time almost 60 years ago.

Priceless...
