I would love to be able to send you an E-Mail to let you know whatever happened to the F-105B you asked about, but i don't have access to your address. I have included a link to the MAPS air museum since the one on this website is not correct

Dad flew 100 wild weasel missions over North Viet Nam in one of these back in 1967.
Awesome bird.

My dad worked for Republic from 1937 (Seversky) to 1972 Fairchild Republic.

F-105 production ended in 1964. The factory ceased operation in 1987 and the site was sold in 1988 destined to become a shopping mall which is what it is today.

F-105F 63-8261 survived the war. It was one of the last three F-105Fs to fly at the Official retirement ceremony "THUD OUT" held at Hill AFB, UT in 1984. She now resides at Heritage Park, Little Rock, AR.

F-105B is located at Fort Meade, FL. It was used for Battle Damage Repair Training. Last I seen it, it was in pretty bad shape.

My father worked at Republic Aircraft from 1940 t0 1965 when they closed the doors. My father helped build the very first F-105 built and I recently came across a picture of him and his crew at Republic Aviation on the first F-105F built S/N 62-4412 if anybody is interested. It actually still being built in the picture.

There is a 105D at the Grissom Air Museum Air Park along US 31 in central Indiana. This base is now closed except for AFRES and Civil Air Patrol operations but the museum is open daily and worth a visit. The tailcode is IN which is nonsensical as this was the tailcode of the AFRES 930 TFG which flew A-37s and A-10s before disbandment. They never flew Thuds.

There is a F-105D on display off Interstate 80 between Omaha and Lincoln, Nebraska. It is an advertisement for the SAC Museum. It is mounted on a pedestal.
