Reconnaissance Conversions to F-84G

By João Vidal

In August 1954 the "Armée de l'Air" 33ER squadron at Cognac, France was in preparation to receive the RF-84F. Meanwhile, to fulfil the REC mission, the squadron engineers decided to produce an in-house conversion of the right T-33A Fletcher tip tank to a "REC POD" for the F-84G.

Webmaster's note: Similar conversions were also used in Yugoslavia; see the Yugoslavia Service page.
