The "Skyblazers" began in 1949 when 3 pilots flying from Malta to Germany decided to try some formation flying and later aerobatics. Eventually USAFE HQ ordered an aerobatic team to be formed and the team received a fourth aircraft. The maneuver that lived up to the name "Skyblazers" began in 1960 when their F-100s would do a gear down slow pass and then they would use the after-burner and suddenly climb leaving a 10 meter flaming trail. The team disbanded in 1964.

North American F-100D 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.

Hobby Master's 1:72 scale F-100 Super Sabre is constructed almost entirely from diecast metal, with only the smallest amount of plastic used. The fuselage is almost seamless, with a hinged articulating canopy that opens for viewing of the cockpit interior. The engine intake has near-razor sharp edges with an unusually long pitot tube, and the surface surrounding the engine is correctly unpainted. The wing has crisp panel lines, hand-painted navigation lights and a complete set of ordnance including rocket, bombs and fuel tanks. Variants include the A, C and D; the D features a larger wing, aerodynamic fences on the wings and two types of refueling probes.
