For a short time during the Vietnam War F-100 Super Sabres were assigned escort duties flying Rescue Combat Air Patrol (RESCAP) and MiG Combat Air Patrol (MiGCAP) missions. The first official U.S. aerial shoot down was made on April 9, 1965 when a U.S. Navy F-4B shot down a MiG-17. However during one RESCAP/MiGCAP mission Captain Donald Kilgus flying F-100D Super Sabre 552894 of the USAF 416th TFS claimed he shot down a Chinese MiG-17 five days earlier than the F-4. Not wanting to provoke China into joining the war the claim was dismissed.

The North American Aviation F-100 Super Sabre was a single-engine jet fighter 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..
