F-84 Thunderjet
The Thunderjet became the U.S. Air Force's primary strike aircraft during the Korean War, flying
86,408 missions and destroying 60% of all ground targets in the war as well as eight Soviet-built
MiG fighters. Over half of the 7,524 F-84s produced served with NATO nations and it was the first
aircraft to fly with the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds demonstration team. The USAF Strategic Air
Command had F-84 Thunderjets in service from 1948 through 1957.
