During 1966, F-100Ds of the 416th TFS/3rd TFW were still wearing their colorful unit markings prior to receiving the drab Southeast Asia (SEA) camouflage. Operating out of Bien Hoa Air Base in South Vietnam, this pair of "Huns" are rolling on to a target marked by smoke rockets from an OV-10 Bronco flying a counter insurgency/forward air controller mission. The high canopy, rivers, and rice paddies look innocent from above but there was always danger hidden beneath the dense forests, jungles and dark waters. Designed as a day fighter, the F-100 Super Sabre came up short in that role – but it became an excellent tactical fighter bomber.
