F-100D 56-440 rises to combat Vietcong enemy forces having overrun one third of its home base, Bien Hoa Airbase, South Vietnam on January 31, 1968

F-100D 56-440 and wingman are shown lifting off from Bien Hoa Air Base, South Vietnam late on the first day of the Tet Offensive, January 31, 1968. The enemy forces had overrun 1/3rd of the base before dawn and were gradually pushed back as the day progressed. Debris on the runway prevented operations until early evening when the first Super Sabres took off through a hail of hostile ground fire to bomb their own base to provide close air support for the friendly forces battling enemy troops. The airmen pressed the attack in poor visibility, silenced all hostile fire directed at their aircraft and U.S. ground troops ending the attack on Bien Hoa.

This actual aircraft is on display at the Steven F. Udvar- Hazy Center of the Smithsonian Institution’s National Air and Space Museum located near Dulles International Airport, VA
