Key Publishing’s book department has released a useful softback on the F-105 Thunderchief…
An iconic aircraft of the Vietnam War, the F-105 was a busy asset in that conflict, flying countless bombing and anti-radar missions. However, it had a whole other career beyond South-East Asia, populating many bases and stations at home in the US and overseas.
Key Publishing’s new 96-page softback, Republic F-105 Thunderchief – Peacetime Operations, showcases the prototype and production models entering service, Tactical Air Command, the F-105D’s debut in Europe, and William Tell 1962, along with a look at the dreaded Operational Readiness Inspections, Pacific Air Forces ‘Thuds’ and service with the Air National Guard and Air Force Reserves.
There’s a superb selection of photos useful for detail and overall airframe context, colour schemes and weaponry. If you have F-105s in your build pile, or fancy buying your first kit of the type and need a basic reference, this book is a wallet friendly option at just £15.99.
