By 

Abstract

Photograph of F-100 Super Sabre in flight, ca.1950. At center, a large U.S. Air Force jet is visible in flight. The jet has a near cylindrical body, except for the rounded beak. Also, a thin pointed rod is visible extending from the front of the beak. Above the beak of the plane, a glass covering encloses a pilot seated within the cockpit. Near the tail of the plane, a large star-shaped emblem is seen. A large thruster engine is visible below the tail attached to the body of the ship. Additionally, three tires are clearly visible beneath the body of the plane. A description on the back of the photoprint reads: "F-100 Super Sabre (Air Force). Strongly pushed in the late 1950's, it gave the United States a supersonic airport"
