F-105D-20-RE
Unit: 562nd TFS, 23rd TFW (6235th TFW), USAF
Serial: FH-116 (61-0116)

Takhli RTAFB, Thailand, September 1st, 1965.

This aircraft is depicted after it had flown 50 combat missions, mostly with the 563rd TFS - it still bears the latter unit's markings, as the 562nd's rudder stripes were blue in colour. On 4 December 1965 61-0116 transferred to the 354th TFS/355th TFW at Takhli, and it was lost to AAA whilst serving with this unit on 20 July 1966 near Hanoi when Col William Nelson, a senior 355th TFW staff officer, made a second strafing run on a truck.

F-105D-20-RE "Hanoi Special"
Unit: 34th TFS, 388th TFW, USAF
Serial: JJ (61-0132)

Korat RTAB, Thailand, August 1967.

1st Lt David Waldrop III had joined the 34th TFS after 45 combat missions as a TDY pilot with the 355th TFW. He had flown a 12 July 1967 Paul Doumer Bridge mission as flight leader on his first 388th TFW combat sortie. Flying as 'Crossbow 02' on 23 August 1967 during an assault on the Yen Vien railway marshalling complex, his jet carrying six M117s, an AIM-9B, ECM pod and wing tanks, Waldrop successfully bombed his target and then felled a MiG-17 with cannon fire. There was evidence to suggest that he had downed a second MiG too, but this remained unconfirmed. 61-0132 was lost on 14 May 1968 when its pilot, Maj Seymour Bass, collided with his flight leader over Thailand and was killed.

F-105D-20-RE "Honeypot III/Have Gun Will Travel"
Unit: 354th TFS, 355th TFW, USAF
Serial: 159/RM (61-0159)

Takhli RTAFB, Thailand, May 1967.

This aircraft retained its nicknames post-war when it served for eight years with the Virginia ANG. The 434th F-105 built, 61-0159 had entered service with the 36th TFW at Bitburg AB, in West Germany, in 1962, after which it flew for 18 months with the 4th TFW - including a spell in July 1965 with the 335th TFS TDY at Takhli as part of the 6441st TFW. On 18 February 1966 the jet was assigned to the 355th TFW, with whom it remained until October 1970. 61-0159 was battle-damaged several times during this period, including suffering a AAA hit to the centreline tank. When the pilot jettisoned the latter it damaged the aircraft's belly, tearing off part of the right stabilizer. Although assigned to 1st Lt.Robert B.Goodman in the Spring of 1967, it was Capt Jacques A. Suzanne who used it to down a MiG-17 on 12 May. In February 1970 it became the first F-105 to reach the type's 4000-hour design limit. The aircraft went on to accumulate another 2094 flying hours before it was placed in storage at Davis-Monthan AFB. The veteran Thunderchief was eventually put on display in the markings of Col.Howard C.'Scrappy' Johnson, founder of the Red River Valley Fighter Pilots' Association, The River Rats.

F-105D-25-RE "The Jolly Roger"
Unit: 357th TFS, 355th TFW, USAF
Serial: 176/RU (61-0176)

Takhli RTAFB, Thailand, January 1970.

Assigned to Maj R.E.Rogers, this aircraft is seen here with 2000-lb Mk.84 and 500-lb Mk.82 bombs and a replacement vented gun-bay door from a reverse-camouflaged aircraft. 61-0176 made its service debut with the 67th TFS/18th TFW at Kadena AB in November 1962, and it returned to the USA when transferred to the 4th TFW in August 1964. Remaining with the latter wing through to December 1965, it participated in a TDY to Takhli RTAFB with the 6441st TFW during this time. Transferring to the 23rd TFW, the aircraft eventually returned to the 18th TFW on 25 July 1966 as an attrition replacement for both 388th and 355th TFWs. It was passed on to the 354th TFS at Takhli on 1 November 1967, and the fighter remained here until the base closed in 1970. After eight years with the Kansas ANG's 184th TFTG, 61-0176 served with the AFRES's 457th and 466th TFSs, before being retired to the USAF Museum with 5813.1 flying hours to its name. In combat, the jet was hit just twice by single 12.7 mm bullets, requiring a mere two man-hours of repairs.

F-105D-25-RE
Unit: 12th TFS, 18th TFW, USAF
Serial: FH-217 (61-0217)

Korat RTAFB, Thailand, March 1965.

The 12th TFS/18th TFW participated in the first PACAF F-105 deployment as a unit of the 18th TFW from the spring of 1963. Amongst the first examples issued to the wing, 61-0217 flew Barrel Roll and early Rolling Thunder missions with the 12th TFS in 1964. When the unit returned to Kadena AB on 25 August 1965 many of its aircraft remained at Korat with the 67th TFS. Lt Col Robinson Risner, architect of the first attacks on the Than Hoa 'Dragon's Jaw' Bridge, was shot down in this aircraft on 16 September 1965. Hit by AAA during an early SAM site attack he ejected near Thanh Hoa and spent the remainder of the war as a POW.
