Q&A

Which unit/State National Guard was this F-100 Super Saber from?

+3

Over the weekend I hiked to the site of a crashed F-100 Super Saber. Most of the paint is gone, but there was this insignia with a Minute Man and two fighter jets.

The crash is dated to 1967 but other than that there is no information as to the unit.

As far as I can tell the unit is marked with an insignia on the tail, does anyone know which unit this was?

It seems that insignia is for the Air National Guard as a whole, not a particular unit. The minuteman is the emblem of the National Guard, and is a stylized drawing of the minuteman statue in Concord Massachusetts:

The minuteman emblem for the National Guard is appropriate since the Guard is essentially descended from the minutemen, which was the Massachusetts Colony militia at the time of the revolution. The Guard therefore claims to be the oldest military unit in the United States.

The two fighter planes specify the Air National Guard, as opposed to the whole National Guard.
