REPUBLIC F-105 THUNDERCHIEF
Peacetime Operations - Historic Military Aircraft Series, Volume 6
Autore: Theo van Geffen, Gerald Arruda
The F-105 Thunderchief was primarily designed for tactical nuclear operations. For this reason, it was on nuclear “Victor” alert in Europe and the Far East. When the air war against North Vietnam was initiated on March 2, 1965, the USAF needed an aircraft with a load-carrying ability, and the only aircraft that could do that job was the Thunderchief. This book not only gives in-depth accounts of various historical F-105 events, with inputs from the pilots involved, but is also lavishly illustrated with over 150 images, many of which have never been published before.
