The F-84 was a straight-winged turbojet day-fighter developed during the late 1940s. It was a poorly behaved aircraft, and it was plagued with so many mechanical and structural failures that in 1949 the Air Force considered cancelling the program entirely. Subsequent models fixed many of the mechanical problems, so the Thunderjet and its sucessors, the F-84F Thunderstreak and the RF-84F Thunderflash continued in the Air Force and the Strategic Air Command until 1957.
The Thunderjet’s long takeoff roll earned it the ire of many of its pilots, who nicknamed it
the fastest tricycle in the world and
the Groundhog. Once in the air, it proved equally picky. Pilots couldn’t fly at over Mach .8 without pitching up severely, risking disintegrating the airframe.
My replication fortunately has none of those problems, and takes off readily at 60m/s, and is fairly agile once airborne.
