Jinkin Josie

Jinkin Josie is a Republic EF-105F Wild Weasel. Wild Weasels are aircraft modified and equipped to attack enemy surface-to-air missile (SAM) sites. Josie was flown by Captain Vern Harris and Captain Kim Pepperell of the 357th Tactical Fighter Squadron over North Vietnam in 1968. Compare Jinkin Josie’s nose art to Virgin Atlantic’s, Josie’s rather risqué no?
