Collings Foundation Receives F-100F Super Sabre for Vietnam Memorial Flight

The Collings Foundation has added an F-100F Super Sabre to its Vietnam Memorial Flight collection.  The Collings Foundation press release, in part, states:

"The Collings Foundation will fly the F-100F in honor of our Vietnam Veterans and all who fought for the freedom of the Vietnamese people. We will be adding the F-100F to the Foundation’s Vietnam Memorial Flight Training Program. Eventually, we would like to add it to our Flight Experience Program that currently features the F-4 Phantom II, A-4 Skyhawk and Bell UH-1E “Huey”. This will be a very rare opportunity for people to see the Super Sabre streak across the sky and fly in one of the most iconic aircraft of the Vietnam War. 

"We would like to thank Frank and Bruce Dworak and their families for making this possible. With his support there is now a F-100 flying in tribute to our Veterans and accessible to all."
