F-100 & F-8: The Forgotten Fighters
10:00 AM - 11:15 AM
Location: Forum Stage 3
Presenter: Eileen Bjorkman
The USAF flew more combat missions in South Vietnam than any other aircraft, mostly air-to-ground missions to support the Army, yet many people only know the F-100 through its "Misty FAC" role. The USN F-8, dubbed "The Last of the Gunfighters," had a significant air-to-air and air-to-ground role over North Vietnam. Please join me for a discussion on these two important aircraft, whose contributions were largely overshadowed by the F-4 in Vietnam.
