This is a North American F100

That's a North American F-100 "Super Sabre" the first of the "Century Series" of Fighters/Interceptors. The F-100 also had the distinction of being the first frontline fighter designed to go supersonic in level flight.

WOW, brings back memories of the first time I saw the Thunderbirds at Laredo...sooo cool
David Ingram
Often referred to as the Lead Sled but the Thunderbirds put on a super show with them.
Bill Butler
I thought the "Lead Sled" was the Blackbird.
RICHARD FAIRLAMB
NOT----a "Fokker 100".....USA's North American Aviation made these as "F-100 Super Sabres"

I remember watching the Thunderbirds flying Super Sabres at an Air Force Academy graduation in COS when I was age 12. President Nixon gave the graduation speech. The T-Birds performed a perfect 5-plane "Bomb Burst," with the leader doing a 90 degree, spiral nose dive through the center.

I remember a TV series back in the 50s called 'Steve Canyon' which featured Thunderbirds F100s. Had to watch it because it had planes in it.

I just you tubed steve canyon and one of the sites has a 5 minutes piece that has a young Leonard Nimoy in the scene with "Dr. Bellow"s" from I dream of genie. Dated 1958. Nimoy is playing a Seargent.

Warmwynds... a number of later day well known actors started in bit parts in these older shows. You just never knew who'd make it.
