1965: F-100 supersonic fighter-bomber jets were reported landing at Cannon Air Force Base as units began returning from rotational duty.

The F-100s, some of which had been flying missions in Vietnam and Laos in recent months, apparently were returning from deployments to Southeast Asia, according to the Clovis News-Journal.

Cannon officials declined to comment on the planes’ activities.
