F105 Thunderchief

The F105 Thunderchief, known as the "Wild Weasel" during the Vietnam War, was also fondly referred to by pilots as the "Thud" for the sound it made when shot down.

The Wild Weasel flew more than 20,000 missions in Vietnam. In all, 382 F105s were lost out of the 833 produced.

This one sits proudly on the ramp outside the Historic Aviation Memorial Museum in Tyler.

I created the image using some of the techniques in Photoshop, and I like the effect.
