Republic F-103 Thunderwarrior






Last updated on: April 1, 2016

This page is for the F-103, a high-performance interceptor that had a short service life due to maintenance issues and changing mission parameters. All 117 built are listed below by serial numbers.

This is a work in progress and any help would be appreciated. Information on these planes is rather difficult to locate online and this work will remain incomplete unless you the readers offer to help me. Please feel free to pass along any information that you might have.

At the end of this page is a list of people who have graciously offered their help. Thank you all very much!
