Jim Gagnon with his bird.

Here is my jet F-105G 62-4424 taken in 1971. Loaded with two AGM 45's and an AGM 78B. As you know the Thud was a big aircraft, I am 6' 1" tall and as you can see I can walk underneath the wing with no problem at all. That was what I liked about the Thud high off the ground unlike the Phantom where you had to practically crawl underneath of it.
