The information given shows the F-100s once again bore the brunt of air-to-ground operations like they did in Vietnam. In another chapter, the attempt to send the remaining F-100s to the USA is told by the writer which makes the story highly stunning as one of the ferried F-100F still flies.

Finally, at the back of the book, the serials numbers of all F-100 Super Sabre aircraft that entered the Turkish Air Force inventory gives the aviation enthusiasts and researchers a valuable reference.
