The first of 254 Thunderjet received from USAF arrived in Italy in Maj 1952.
The 5°Stormo was the first that received the new jet for his 101°Gruppo and 102°Gruppo,in the next year the Stormo becoming in Aerobrigata,like an USAF's Wings,whit an additional Gruppo the 103°that passed it's F-47D to the 22° Gruppo of 51^ Aerobrigata.
This skin depicts some F-84G of 103° Gruppo(Group) based at Villafranca Air Base in the 1953;the three flash on the vertical tail symbolized,with his colours,all the group: yellow for 103°,blue for 102° and red for 101°.
The original skin is by Russouk2004.
All I did was repaint and add some details, and lots of decal work.
