Buck,
It's in the Bob-o-shop as he will get the first one ready for testing. We'll have one here before too long.
I'll be happy to show it off, Bob is doing a fantastic job.

Dave's gotta get the F8 going, it's much too nice to be a static display!

See ya
Paul

Craig,
I bet you have seen one of those up close and personal, huh? It is impressive. Beautiful work on the jet and the cockpit.

Well, I never flew the Thud but we were based together in Thailand and we flew in some of the strike packages with them over the North. The Thud drivers were definately at the top of the fighter pilot food chain back in those days.

If you look closley in this photo of A-7's on the ramp you can see an F-105 in burner taking off on a combat mission. This was later in the war and they were mostly flying as Wild Weasels and going after the missle sites.
