The first supersonic fighter in not just America but the world, the F-100 Super Sabre marked a real revolution in aircraft design. A celebration of this truly remarkable fighter, F-100 Super Sabre highlights the many firsts in a long and distinguished career: The Super Sabre preceded the Soviet Unions Mig-19 into the supersonic arena by as much as five months. It was the first operational jet fighter to exceed Mach I in level flight. And in its heyday the F-100 set a raft of speed and altitude records.

The first in a noble line of fighters soon to be known as The Century Series, the F-100 had the F-102 Delta Dagger, F-104 Star Fighter, F-105 Thunderchief, and the venerable F-160 Delta Dart as stablemates. In authoritative text and pictures, technical drawings and photographs, F-100 Super Sabre details the aircrafts every variation, her weaponry, and equipment. The book is a fitting tribute to the fighter nicknamed Hundert or more affectionately, The Hun --an aircraft loved by nearly everyone who flew or tended her and respected by all.
