The 120th FS ‘Colorado Cougars’ were stationed at Buckley Field, Lowry AFB, Colorado. In January 1961 the unit was again re-designated, this time as the 120th Tactical Fighter Squadron. In May 1968 the squadron was sent to Phan Rang Air Base, South Vietnam with their F-100Cs. When the 120th returned from Vietnam in April 1969 they were re-equipped with the F-100D variant, which they flew until April 1974 when they converted to the LTV A-7D Corsair II.Opening canopy

The North American F-100 Super Sabre was a single-engine jet fighter aircraft that served with the U.S. Air Force and the Air National Guard. First flown on May 25, 1953, the F-100A entered operational service with the USAF in September 1954. It was capable of supersonic speed and made extensive use of titanium throughout the aircraft. During the Vietnam War, the F-100 flew extensively over South Vietnam as the primary close air support aircraft until it was replaced by the subsonic Vought A-7 Corsair II. It was also used by the air forces of several NATO nations and other U.S. allies. The F-100 was retired from service with the USAF in 1970 and by the Air National Guard in 1979.
