North American F-100F Super Sabre
The North American F-100 Super Sabre is a swept wing supersonic jet fighter that served with the US Air Force from 1954 to 1971 and the Air National Guard until 1979.
One of the most important military aircraft in the history of the United States. Due to the performance of the aircraft, the Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps all utilized the F-4.
McDonnell TA-4J Skyhawk
The Collings Foundation is proud to honor the memory of all Vietnam Veterans by returning the Playboy colors to the sky.
Bell UH-1E Iroquois
The UH-1 initially saw combat in Vietnam where its use as an infantry transport craft into the dense jungles made its type famous on television in some of the first news broadcasts from the battlefields.
Made famous by the Vietnam War, the MiG-17F was the primary enemy aircraft engaged in the skies over Vietnam by U.S. aircraft, such as the A-4,A-7, F-8, B-52, F-100, F-105 and its primary nemesis, the F-4 Phantom II. During that war and up until the F-16 entered service, it was the tightest-turning fighter in the world. When production started in the 1950s, its VK-1F engine made it one of the first production jet fighters in the world with an afterburner. The MiG-17F could carry bombs, rockets, or extra fuel tanks under its wings.
