34th TFS
34th Tactical Fighter Squadron - Thud Era
Korat RTAFB, Thailand - May 1966 to May 1969
About Us
This site is dedicated to the United States Air Force 34th Tactical Fighter Squadron during what we will call the "Thud Era", which was the period at Korat, RTAFB, Thailand, when the squadron flew the F-105 Thunderchief. The dates were 15 May 1966 to 10 May 1969. After that the 34th TFS transitioned to the F-4 Phantom. The history section has a bit more detail.
Site Navigation
Main category links are shown in the title bar above and some of those have sub-categories, which are shown in in the drop down menu. The Pictures category has several sub-categories that provide many pictures and F-105 histories of most of the pilots from this era. The Reunions category also has many pictures of more recent gatherings.

Other pictures, names, and a few stories are scattered throughout the site.
