Up-Close Aircraft Day
Saturday, September 8
Vietnam War Attack Fighter
11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The March Field Air Museum's “Up-Close Aircraft Day” for September will feature the Republic F-105 Thunderchief, the largest single-seat, single-engine combat aircraft ever when it entered service in the 1950s. It could exceed the speed of sound at sea level, and reach Mach 2 at high altitudes while carrying up to 14,000 lbs. of bombs and missiles. In spite of a troubled early service life, the F-105 became the dominant attack aircraft early in the Vietnam War and flew over 20,000 sorties. Click on the aircraft image for more details!
