F-105 Thunderchief Aviation Print Release


F-105 Thunderchief Aviation Art Print

Known affectionately as the "Thud", the F-105 Thunderchief was designed to deliver a nuclear payload by flying low and fast. At low altitude nothing could outrun the "Thud". The F-105 Thunderchief was used extensively during the war in Vietnam as a fighter/bomber. In terms of bombs delivered on target she was second only to the venerable B-52. Later versions of the F-105 Thunderchief had two seats and were utilized on Wild Weasel missions to detect and destroy enemy surface-to-air missile sites. Our print depicts two F-105D models flying low and fast with a centerline bomb load destined for Hanoi.
Prints are available in 20" x 24" and 11" x 14" sizes. This print and many other aviation art works are available through our website: http://www.markkarvon.com/. If you have any questions please contact us at: cbscharlotte@ctc.net

This is a great depiction of the Thud! I love the feel of motion in your work! The only time I was around and supported the F-105 was at Korat, Thailand in 72-73. By then, we had the F-105G, Wild Weasel and it flew the Air-to-Ground Antiradiation missiles--Shrike and Standard ARM. It also carried bombs. My favorite of these were the ones with the Shark Teeth markings. Those were the ones assigned to the 388th TFW. Generally the TDY birds didn't bear the shark teeth.
