  1. You are welcome. Jun in Tokyo
  2. At the least, two RF-101s were observed at Yokota AFB, Tokyo in 1966. It is believed that they flew from Tan Son Nhut. Photos from GO! NAVY Message Board II. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  3. The RF-101Cs were deployed to SEA before the SEA camouflages was introduces. The early Recon Voodoos were NM of ADC grey, but some FR-101A and RF-101C were painted in two-tone green experimental camouflages wit the large stars and bars. There were no SEA camouflaged RF-101 wearing the large stars and bars. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  4. The Arms and Armour Press book, Falklands the Air War listed the following 19 Herks: XV179, 185, 187, 191, 192, 195, 196, 200, 201, 204, 205, 206, 211, 218, 291, 292, 296, 298 and 300. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  5. Yes, this photo means the photo exactly the same as your original post, but of a bit better quality than yours. Glad to know you like my Flickr photo album. Jun in Tokyo
  6. Found this photo of an F-84F Thunderstreak. The frames are dark green and inside the skin is N/M or painted silver. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  7. Found this photo on page 16 of Double Ugly book, LTV A-7D/K Corsair II The 'SLUF' in USAF and USANG Service 1968-1993. Famous Aircraft of the USAF and USANG Vol.1, in which the caption says "A-7D 69-6241 of the 355th TFS, 354th TFW awaits its next mission in its revetment at Korat RTAFB, laden with six BLU-27 fire bombs with fins."

  8. A fellow modeller of mine built an Airframe 1/72 vacuum form kit of the Fairey Long Range Monoplane last year. Here are a couple of photos of his build. Cheers Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  9. If you mean the Thunderjet, there is a color photo of an F-84E with the gun bay door open, on page 72 of Osprey Frontline Color 3 F-84 Thunderjet over Korea. The inside of the door is dark green while the inside of the gear doors and speed brake are zinc yellow. Sorry, I have no photo if you mean Thunderstraek.

  10. Totally agree with Pete. The photo is not clear, but the fin shape is characteristic of the BLU-1/27 and the size also matches. The BLU-1/27 is listed on page 1-128 of the A-7K Aircraft Weapon Delivery Manual. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  11. According to the Pilot's Notes Hunter F. Mk. 6, the flaps are lowered during landing only. The flaps are raised before taxing as the Pilot's Notes instruct the flaps should be up after landing. For take off, normally the flaps are not used, but to be set at 38 degrees down when external stores are carried. The flaps are still in up position after the engine is shut down, but they can be lowered by means of pressure from the air bottle when the hydraulic pressure is not available. Cheers, Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  12. There are photos of WB202, XF310, WW594 and XF378 in Putnum book, Hawker Aircraft since 1920 by F. K. Mason. Another F. K. Mason's book, Hawker Hunter Biography of a thoroughbred has a close up of the dummy Firestreaks and pylons. Warpaint No. 8 Hawker Hunter has a color profile of XF378. The Flight magazine features a detailed article on the Fireflash in 16 August 1957 issue. You can download this article as PDF files from the Flightglobal/Archive at https://www.flightglobal.com/pdfarchive/view/1957/1957 - 1136.html?search=fireflash Cheers, Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  13. The tail plane span of the single seater is 14 ft. while the two seater has the longer tail plane of 15 ft. 8 in. Cheers, Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  14. VA-56 used the tail code "AH" during 1970 when the unit was deployed in CVW-16 (tail code AH). They did not use the A-7A in this period, but used the A-7B with modex 400. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
  15. Sorry, those photos should be of RF-4E, not F-4E. Jun in Tokyo https://www.flickr.com/photos/horaburo/albums
