Details
The "D" variant was the ultimate version of the F-100 with 1,274 aircraft being 
produced. The production of the F-100 ended in August 1959. The F-100D arrived in 
Southeast Asia in 1962 with its primary mission being close air support and ground 
attack within South Vietnam. This role was eventually taken over by the A-7 Corsair II. 
The aircraft became affectionately known as “The Hun”, short for “one HUNdred”. The 
last F-100 left Vietnam in July 1971 but not before 242 of these aircraft was lost. The 
“Hun” was eventually replaced by the F-4 Phantom II and the F-105 Thunderchief.

In 1971 the 182nd TFS of the Texas Air National Guard located at Kelly Field, San 
Antonio began receiving their F-100Ds. Most Super Sabres of this period were being 
used in the Vietnam War but these aircraft came from the 48th TFW at RAF Lakenheath and the 20th TFW that was leaving RAF Wethersfield for RAF Upper Heyford and re-equipping with F-111s. The 182nd TFS flew the F-100D from 1971 – 1978 and the F-100Ds were retired and 8, including 0-53669 (55-3669) were converted to QF-100D 
pilot-less drones.
