Hun was as the first USAF fighter dedicated to the Electronic Warfare (EW) in the "Wild Weasel I" program, which used highly modified F-100F aircraft to seek and destroy enemy AAA and Surface-to-Air Missile (SAM) sites. F-100Fs were also chosen to implement the Fast Forward Air Controller concept to improve interdiction results along the dangerous "Ho Chi Minh Trail." It was known as the "Misty" mission, after their famous radio call sign.

The Hun's combat record ended when the last ones, all belonging to the 35th Tactical Fighter Wing, left the SEA Theater in July 1971, reassigned to bases stateside. In all, the warhorse Hun flew 360,283 combat sortics in SEA (more than all other USAF fighters combined), with 242 losses!

The People: This airfoil, with a limited number of names from various member categories of The Super Sabre Society, is dedicated to all those who flew F-100 aircraft or served her—and her multiple, global missions.
