Ralph also tells us that he lived only a few houses down on North Carolina Avenue from the tail gunner of Buzz One Four and the bombardier was his Little League Team coach. Ralph also knew Francis Gary Powers of U-2 fame and Thomas W. Ferebee, the bombardier on the Enola Gay’s Hiroshima mission.

F-84F Thunderstreak

Made by Republic Aviation Corporation of Farmingdale, L.I., N.Y, the F-84F Thunderstreak has sleek, clean lines which attest to the super-fast speed. The Air Force’s first swept-wing fighter-bomber, the T-Streak’s versatility qualifies it equally for interceptor and escort missions. As a fighter, the "F" is capable of very high speeds and exceptionally long-range operations. As a ground support plane, it is designed to carry more armament than the record breaking loads of its sister plane, the F-84G Thunderjet. The Thunder-streak is in full scale production for supply to major USAF commands and North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) countries.
