The Museum of Aviation at Robins AFB, Ga., received an F-100D Super Sabre on Dec. 13, 2010, that, upon restoration, will go on display in its growing Vietnam War collection. This airframe, tail number 56-2995, has special ties to the Robins area. Retired Maj. Gen. Rick Goddard, a past commander of the Warner Robins Air Logistics Center, flew this very airplane on 180 combat missions during the Vietnam War. This F-100D will replace an F-100C at the museum that had no record of combat in Vietnam. Here (main image), Goddard views the disassembled F-100D upon its arrival at the museum.
