The North American F-100 Super Sabre is an American supersonic jet fighter aircraft that served with the United States Air Force (USAF) from 1954 to 1971 and with the Air National Guard (ANG) until 1979. The first of the Century Series of USAF jet fighters, it was the first USAF fighter capable of supersonic speed in level flight. The F?100 was designed by North American Aviation as a higher performance follow-on to the F-86 Sabre air superiority fighter. Primary Role: Close Air Support, Ground-Attack And Anti-Ship Jet Aircraft.

For a short time during the Vietnam War F-100s were assigned escort duties flying Rescue Combat Air Patrol (RESCAP) and MiG Combat Air Patrol (MiGCAP) missions. The first official U.S. aerial shoot down was made on April 9, 1965 when a USN F-4B shot down a MiG-17. However during one RESCAP/MiGCAP mission Captain Donald Kilgus flying F-100D 55-2894 of the 416th TFS claimed he shot down a Chinese MiG-17 five days earlier than the F-4. Not wanting to provoke China into joining the war the claim was dismissed.
