NAA F-100D “Hun”: Burning Love.

“Huns” of the 481st Tactical Fighter Squadron over South Vietnam in February 1966. Two of them looking definitely tired in their dilapidated silver livery. Early in the Vietnam war the F-100’s wore this silver livery, but all eventually received the more suitable T.O: 1-1-4 “South-East Asia” camouflage.

Always a fan of the F-100’s archetypical “heat-treated” rear end. The J57 afterburner had no mercy with paints so the area was usually left simply unpainted.
