193 / 365 project : F-100 “Spirit of Palmdale”

21 Nov

My 365 project would not be complete if I did not do homage to the industry that has sustained the economy of the city where I live. Joe Davies AirPark on the southern edge of Air Force Plant 42 houses some of the cutting edge air technology, all with production ties to Palmdale, that has helped maintain the air superiority of our Air Force, Navy, and Marines. Today saw the unveiling of an F-100 in Thunderbird colors in a ceremony honoring the late William “Pete” Knight, the world’s fastest man having piloted the X-15, who flew more than 250 missions in Vietnam in an F-100.
