Hun Pilot examines the first of the Century Series of new fighters of the mid-'50s from a young fighter pilot's perspective. The North American Aviation F-100 Super Sabre was the first U.S. fighter... More > capable of exceeding the speed of sound in level flight. Designed as a day superiority fighter, it quickly morphed into the Air Force's mainstay fighter-bomber. The F-100 design and its Pratt and Whitney J-57 engine were a quantum leap in aerodynamics and engine technology that expanded the day-to-day operational flight envelope. Pioneering supersonic operations discovered a previously unknown aeronautical phenomenon that challenged new piloting skills. Over its quarter of a century operational career, the F-100 suffered one of the highest accident rates in the fighter inventory, with 38.75% of the fleet destroyed in aircraft accidents. With properly trained pilots, the aircraft fulfilled the USAF requirement for a worldwide deterrent against the nuclear Communist threat.< Less

Capable of speeds in excess of 1200 miles per hour, the F-101 Voodoo was originally designed as a long-range bomber escort. Shortly after the plane’s debut in 1957, however, Strategic Air... More > Command determined that jet escorts for the B-52 were unnecessary. The F-101 was then reconfigured as an air-defense interceptor, fighter-bomber, and reconnaissance platform. Known by its pilots as the “one oh one wonder” for its performance capabilities, the Voodoo flew with distinction in Vietnam, and performed recon missions over Cuba. Over 880 F-101s were built, flying for the USAF and RCAF as late as 1984. Originally printed by McDonnell and the USAF, this F-101 Voodoo Flight Operating Manual was classified “Restricted”.

The Douglas F4D Skyray was a single-engine, delta- wing fighter aircraft. Equipped with the J40 after-burning turbojet, it was at one time the world’s hottest plane. On October 15, 1953, pilot... More > Bob Rahn set a speed record of 728 mph on a 100 km course — a mark that would not be eclipsed for five years. Troubles with powerplants resulted in delays with the F4D entering service. When it finally came on line in 1956, it was generally met with enthusiasm. It had wonderful rates of roll and climb, the latter being of some import for its planned mission: high-altitude interception. Yet the plane’s short range, awkward handling characteristics, and inherent instability made it somewhat ill-suited for carrier use. Although 420 “Fords” were built by 1958, they were withdrawn in 1964. Originally printed by Douglas and the U.S. Navy, this handbook provides a fascinating glimpse inside the cockpit of this plane. The manual was recently declassified and is here reprinted in book form.< Less

The two-seat F-100F performed well in the forward air control role, and conducted “Wild Weasel” missions.
