YP-96A depicted on Republic poster

Major John S. Bradley was presented with a poster by Republic Aviaton in honor of his services for the USAF flying Republic aircraft. Although the photo on the poster is captioned as "USAF -- Republic F-84F Thunderjet", the photo is actually of the YF-96A, the first prototype for what became the F-84F Thunderstreak. Note the rocket armament being carried underwing. The poster is 17x22, much larger than this photo printed on it; the light brown poster paper lends its cast to this very rare color photo.
