Thunderbolt flies over Oahu

A Republic F-47N “Thunderbolt” assigned to the 199th Fighter Squadron of the Hawaii Air National Guard is shown flying over the ocean with Waikiki and Diamond Head in the background. The 199th FS flew these aircraft from 1947 until 1954. Note the “TH” (Territory Of Hawaii) markings and the original 199th FS “Kukailimoku” emblem.
