Cold War Sentinels by markkarvon Cold War Sentinels by markkarvon
The F-84F was originally a swept-wing modification to the F-84E Thunderjet but the extensive changes required made the type an almost new design. The Thunderstreak was adaptable and durable. Although it was not considered a spectacular performer, it was an excellent cruising machine and it could out maneuver an F-86 Sabre at low altitude. Too late to join its sibling (the F-84E Thunderjet) in the Korean war, the Thunderstreak spent most of its service life during the Cold War. The F-84F was dependable in the service of the US Air Force and served with Air National Guard units until 1972. This print depicts an F-84F Thunderstreak of the Ohio ANG about to rendezvous with a KC-97 Stratotanker to refuel.

Your art is always a joy and fabulous to behold! You bring each of your subject to life in just brilliant fashion! In this it is possible to feel that us as the viewer is just in another nearby plane looking over at this grand pair of cold war aircraft. Grand work indeed! :D
