The 479th Wing Commander Colonel George "Ravin'" Laven Jr. selected a new F-100C for his personal aircraft. Its serial was 54-2076, the same last four digits of the P-38 he flew in 1942-43. In four years Colonel Laven logged over 2,000 hours and was the only military officer during that time to ever fly the aircraft. After several years the aircraft went to the New Mexico ANG who spent time in Vietnam. Upon returning to the US 2076 along with 91 other F-100Cs were sold to Turkey and flew until the early 1980's.

North American F-100C Super Sabre

Designed as a high-performance evolution of the F-86 Sabre, the F-100 Super Sabre was first flown on May 25, 1953. This swept-wing aircraft was the first in the "Century Series" and the first operational USAF aircraft capable of supersonic speed in level flight. It was adapted for use as a fighter-bomber and was the Air Force's primary close-support aircraft through much of the Vietnam War. Despite its promise, the F-100 proved to be a dangerous aircraft, by the end of its USAF service in 1972, a total of 889 F-100s had been lost in accidents, claiming the lives of 324 pilots.
