F-84 Thunderjet

F-84C Thunderjet (Pima 03-23-17) 0092

I photographed this F-84 Thunderjet at the Pima Air&Space Museum in Tucson. The straight wings of the Thunderjet were later redesigned into swept-wing versions as the F84-F Thunderstreak and the RF-84F Thunderflash that had air intakes at the wing root rather than in the nose, resulting in a loss of power but used in a reconnaissance role.
