North American F-100 Super Sabre

 F-100 Photo Gallery

First operational supersonic fighter. The F-100 had a long and distinguished career, but was not without problems. It was designed before the 'area rule' was known; its supersonic performance was achieved by streamlining and power. It was very big for a fighter aircraft when it was first flown, and heralded a new generation of bigger, faster, and heavier fighters: the "Century Series". As an interceptor, it was soon overtaken by newer designs; the F-100 was used mostly as a fighter-bomber. The RF-100 was a recce version of the F-100 Super Sabre with equipment in a rectangular fairing under the forward fuselage. There also was an NF-100 with a thrust-reverser for low-speed controllability tests.
