REQ: Are There Photos Of Flying F100 Super Sabres?

Sat Jul 25, 2009 12:29 pm

There are non on this site. And even on the rest of the Internet there are second to none good quality pictures of the F100 in flying condition. Is there any club or team that is making one fly-worthy for the future? And has anybody a decent photo of a flying F100?

Cheers.

Of course there are. You just need to look a little harder:

I used the good 'ol Photo Index.

Specifically, I sorted it by aircraft type (here), scrolled down, and clicked on the link to view all 390 shots of the F-100. Then, I sorted those shots by "most popular" to find the shots above.

I believe not. The F-100 is a heavy complex aircraft - with a very high landing speed.

According to this forum post from over a year ago,

http://www.warbirdinformationexchang....org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=162341

(and several other sources - just google 'flight worthy f-100), there are as many as four f-100s that may be flyable, but only two of which have been flown in the past few years. One was flown as recently as a few months ago. All seem to located in the U.S., and one seems to occasionally do airshows (the one owned by Dean Cutshall)

And if you're REALLY interested in seeing one fly, it seems one of those airworthy F-100s is for sale for only $375,000:

Thank y'all for bringing this up. The F-100 was one of my favorites when I was a kid. I thought they were cool as hell in T'Birds colors!
