F-105F Thud Wild Weasels and Rolling Thunder

DAYTON, Ohio - In the First in, Last Out: Wild Weasels vs. SAMs exhibit 1) Capt. Robert Dorrough's K-2B flight suit and "boonie hat" from his service as a Wild Weasel pilot at Korat from June 1967 to January 1968. On his hat are hash marks showing each mission, with the red marks denoting missions in Route Pack 6. Although new aircrews were supposed to have low-threat orientation missions to start their tours, Dorrough's first mission was near Hanoi. 2) Maj. Arthur Oken's K-2B flight suit from his service with the 354th TFS of the 355th TFW at Takhli in 1969-1970. Oken flew as a Wild Weasel EWO in F-100Fs, F-105Fs and F-105Gs. In his three tours, he flew over one hundred Wild Weasel combat missions (including about 20 F-100F missions in Route Pack 6. 3) Knife and machete carried by Dorrough on all his missions. He bought the handmade machete while in survival school in the Philippines. 4) Patches, the F-105 Wild Weasels in the 388th Tactical Fighter Wing at Korat were in one squadron. It was first designated the 13th Tactical Fighter Squadron and later the 44th TFS. (U.S. Air Force photo)

F-105F Thud Wild Weasels and Rolling Thunder

DAYTON, Ohio - In the First in, Last Out: Wild Weasels vs. SAMS exhibit: 1) Survival vest worn by Maj. Edward White while flying F-105F WIld Weasel missions in 1968. White was heavily involved in the Wild Weasel program. He deployed with the first group of F-100F Wild Weasels in 1965, flew F-105F missions in 1967 and 1968 and trained Wild Weasel aircrews in the U.S. 2) Capt. Larry Huggins' "boonie hat." Huggins served as a Wild Weasel pilot with th 44th TFS at Korat in 1968 and retired from the USAF as a brigadier general in 1989. In addition to the 113 mission marks on the hat, is his name spelled out in Cyrillic (Russian) letters. It was written by the "Russian exchanged pilot," a fellow airman and naturalized American whose family had escaped from Russia in the 1930s. 3) Capt. Huggins' F-105 patch, which was commonly worn by F-105 aircrews in Southeast Asia. 4) Capt. Huggins' 100 mission patch. This patch was a badge of honor for pilots and EWOs. Technically, they could return to the U.S. after 80 missions over North Vietnam, but most chose to stay until they completed 100. 5) Capt. Billy Sparks' flight jacket. In addition to his service as a Wild Weasel pilot from March to October 1967, he also flew F-105Ds. All together, he flew more than 140 missions over North Vietnam. 6) The entire family could be proud of Wild Weasel service. This apron belonged to Sparks' wife, Dell, and it was signed by all the wives of the Wild Weasel school at Nellis AFB. 7) Many Wild Weasels made the ultimate sacrifice. POW/MIA bracelets were worn to remember prisoners and the missing until they returned. This POW/MIA bracelet was for Donald Singer, a 354th TFS EWO who went missing in action on Aug. 17, 1966 (along with his pilot, Maj. Joseph Brand). Both of their remains were recovered and returned to the U.S. in October 1977. 8) Each CBU-24 carried 665 of these BLU-26/B 1.2-lb. bomblets. (U.S. Air Force photo)

100 Missions Up North100 Missions Up North
100 Missions Up North

DAYTON, Ohio - Capt. Richard “Dick” Rutan’s boonie hat (front left). In 1968, he flew 105 F-100F Misty FAC missions. During his tour, he was shot down, but was recovered. In 1986, Rutan, along with Jeanne Yeager, flew the Voyager aircraft on the first, non-stop, unrefueled flight around the world. Col. Larry Bogemann, an F-105 pilot in the 34th TFS, 388th TFW, kept track of his missions on this boonie hat (back left). Capt. Robert Bradshaw, an F-105 pilot in the 354th TFS, 355th TFW, decorated his hat with metal pull tabs from beverage cans (back right). During his tour from September 1966-May 1967, he flew 108 combat missions. The “6A” was for missions near Hanoi in Route Pack 6A, “NVN” was for missions in other parts of North Vietnam, and “NC” meant “non-counters” in Laos. The monkey pin was for good luck, and it related to an invincible white monkey in an ancient epic Thai tale. Lt. (later Major) Ed Rasimus, an F-105 pilot in the 421st TFS, completed his 100th mission over North Vietnam on November 3, 1966. The red hash marks were originally intended “to signify the days that were just a bit more intense than they should have been.” However, there were so many that he ended up using them to signify every tenth mission. Rasimus completed over 250 combat missions in Southeast Asia, and his second tour in F-4Es is the top row of hash marks (and Laotian missions are on the back) (front right). (U.S. Air Force photo)
