This is a video about the types of air masses that affect North America. An Air mass is a large body of air that is similar in temperature throughout. Air masses are labeled based on two things; if the air is dry or moist and the temperature of the air. If the air mass is formed over land then it is dry and called Continental. If the air mass is formed over water then it is moist and called Maritime. There are three classifications for temperature. The coldest types of air masses are called Arctic. These are very bitter and are formed near the poles. Next are Polar air masses. These air masses have cold air. The third type is tropic air masses. These consist of warm air. Now put these two qualifications together to decide what type of air mass it is. If it is above the poles then the air mass is called Continental Arctic. If the air mass is dry and cold then it is called Continental Polar. If the air mass is warm and dry it is called Continental Tropic. If the air is wet and cold then it is called Maritime Polar. If the air mass is warm and moist then it is called Maritime Tropic. Now lets talk about some places that that these air masses form. A continental arctic air mass might be formed over northern Canada. A continental polar air mass might be formed over southern Canada or northern United States. A Maritime Polar air mass might be formed over the ocean off the coast of New England. A Continental Tropic Air mass might be formed over Mexico. A Maritime Tropic air mass might be formed over the Gulf of Mexico. As a quick recap, Air masses can be dry or moist and vary in temperature. These qualities are determined based off of where the Air masses are formed and are how the air masses are labeled. This concludes our video of the types of Air masses that affect North America.

The North American F-100 Super Sabre was a jet fighter aircraft that served with the United States Air Force (USAF) from 1954 to 1971 and with the Air National Guard (ANG) until 1979. As the first of the Century Series collection of USAF jet fighters, it was capable of supersonic speed in level flight, and made extensive use of titanium throughout the aircraft. The F-100 was originally designed as a higher performance follow-on to the F-86 Sabre air superiority fighter. Adapted as a fighter bomber, the F-100 would be supplanted by the Mach 2 class F-105 Thunderchief for strike missions over North Vietnam. The F-100 flew extensively over South Vietnam as the Air Force's primary close air support jet until replaced by the more efficient subsonic A-7 Corsair II. The F-100 also served in several NATO air forces and with other US allies. In its later life, it was often referred to as "the Hun," a shortened version of "one hundred." The F-100D arrived in Southeast Asia in 1962 and began flying combat missions, used primarily for close air support and ground attacks within South Vietnam. On 18 August 1964, the first F-100D to be shot down by ground fire was piloted by 1st Lt Colin A. Clark, of the 428th TFS; Clark ejected and survived. On 4 April 1965 an F-100 piloted by Capt Donald W. Kilgus shot down a North Vietnamese Air Force MiG-17, using cannon fire. Although not officially confirmed, this represented the first aerial victory "kill" by US forces in Vietnam. The Hun was also deployed as a two-seat F-100F model which saw service as a "Fast-FAC" or "Misty-Fac" (forward air controller) in North Vietnam, spotting targets for other fighter-bomber aircraft and conducting SAR (Search and Rescue) missions as part of the top-secret Commando Sabre or "Misty" Operation based out of Phu Cat Airbase. It was also the first Wild Weasel SEAD aircraft whose specially-trained crews were tasked with locating and destroying enemy air defenses. Four F-100F Wild Weasel Is were fitted with an APR-25 vector radar homing and warning (RHAW) receivers, IR-133 panoramic receivers with greater detection range, and KA-60 panoramic cameras. The RHAW could detect early-warning radars and, more importantly, emissions from SA-2 Guideline tracking and guidance systems. These aircraft deployed to Korat Royal Thai Air Force Base in Thailand in November 1965, and began flying combat missions with the 388th Tactical Fighter Wing in December. They were joined by three more aircraft in February 1966. All Wild Weasel F-100Fs were eventually modified to fire the AGM-45 Shrike anti-radiation missile. By war's end, 242 F-100 Super Sabres had been lost in Vietnam, as the F-100 was progressively replaced by the F-4 Phantom II and the F-105 Thunderchief. The Hun had logged 360,283 combat sorties during the war and its operations came to end on July 31, 1971. By 1972, the F-100 was mostly phased out of USAF active service and turned over to tactical fighter groups and squadrons in the Air National Guard. In Air National Guard units, the F-100 was eventually replaced by the F-4 Phantom II, A-7 Corsair II, and A-10 Thunderbolt II, with the last F-100 retiring in 1979. In foreign service, Danish and Turkish F-100s soldiered on until 1982. Turkish F-100-units were used during the invasion to Cyprus in 1974. Together with F-104G Starfighters they provided close air support to Turkish ground troops and bombed targets around Nicosia.
