In 1955 the F-105 Thunderchief, aptly nicknamed “Thud”, was the largest single-seat, single-engine combat aircraft in history. With a capacity larger than most WWII bombers, it was the workhorse of OP Rolling Thunder. This operation embodied the conundrum of Vietnam with bureaucracy & corporate interests restricting command from targeting vital objectives over N. Vietnam. Limited to bombing bridges and logistics, pilots ran a gauntlet along “Thud Ridge” with strict orders not to engage the enemy. Because of this, the Thud became the only U.S. aircraft to be removed from combat due to losses. This forced a cultural change within the fighter community; which independently created Ex. Red Flag and pushed command to supplement the F-15 with the F-16.

Tasting notes: Thud is coming in hot with fresh aromas of lemongrass, white peach, green apple, and pear! This bouquet paves the way for a palate of mouthwatering acids and tropical fruits. Extended yeast contact lends itself to a rounded textured mouthfeel making it a robust delight. Bring your wingman because this is not your average blanc noir!
