F-100D-35-NH "Super Sabre" s/n 55-2739
French Air Force EC 4/11 "Jura", Djibouti 1978
The North American F-100 Super Sabre served the USAF from 1954 to 1971 and the
ANG until 1979. The F-100 commonly referred to as the “Hun”, a shortened version of
“one hundred” was the first US fighter capable of attaining supersonic speed in level
flight. The Hun was used extensively as close-air-support in South Vietnam. The F-100
suffered from landing gear and brake parachute failures, electrical problems, 500 of the
1,274 F- 100Ds that were built were lost mostly due to these failures.



In 1973 the French Air Force created the squadron EC 4/11 “Jura” equipped with
12 F-100Ds. They were based near the Red Sea at Air Base 188, in the French
protectorate of Djibouti. On May 24,1978 Jura’s F-100Ds had flown 100,000 hours so to
commemorate this an aircraft was painted with a shark’s mouth. It was so popular that
the remaining 11 F-100Ds were given the same paint scheme and were referred to as
the “Sharks of the Red Sea”. The F-100Ds were replaced by Mirage IIIs in 1978.
