Logan Jackson “Jack” Doub 08/28/1934 – 1/13/2017
Aviation Cadet to LtCol
We lost a great F-100 pilot who started in the F-86 Sabre Jet and went on to fly the next fighter, the Super Sabre, for 11 years. He flew the F-100 in the most challenging and hazardous environments; in combat at the height of the Vietnam War, and later as Misty 145 flying in combat over the Ho Chi Minh Trail, where prisoners only rarely survived. He holds the record for F-100 combat missions: 572.
He ended his F-100 flying days as Active Air Advisor to the Terre Haute Indiana Air National Guard, the last military unit to fly the Super Sabre.
Jack was a charter member of the Super Sabre Society and frequent contributor to our journal, The Intake. His contagious personality filled any room. Jack was clever, very curious and a joy to all his friends.
Jack loved both flying and people. We miss you Jack!
