The "Thunderchief" is a favorite a/c of mine, and given the photo is nearly 40 years makes it a very good photo. Thank you to who ever shot and posted it.

My dad was a mechanic on the F-105 at Brookley AFB in Mobile, Alabama in the 60's. He told me sometimes the pilots would talk some of the mechanics into taking flights in Thunderchief and then proceed to do aerial stunts in them just long enough to get the mechanics airsick.
