F-100 pilots share their excitement about flying the fighter again after nearly five decades, in some cases, and reminisce about flying the aircraft during the Vietnam War and afterward through the Air National Guard. The pilots, some of whom are featured here, flew the F-100 at Fort Wayne, Indiana, in May during a gathering of the Super Sabre Society. Check out this expanded content from the November AOPA Pilot article, "One more time."
