RE: New Look For Canada's AF1 (CC-150)

Dumb. If they're changing from the gray they should use the same sceme they used on every previous RCAF transport- gray/bare metal belly, white top, red & white cheater strip, red white & blue roundel. The current gray sceme is actually just a "monochrome" version of that anyway.

RE: Super-Sabre Maneuverability Question

I think the maneuverability of the F-100 was pretty reasonable, especially when compared to the F-104 & -105. It's weak points were thrust ratio (low, at least in the A & C models) & take-off performance (hairy). It was maneuverable enough to serve as the Thunderbirds' mount from 1956-1969.
