Is this a F100 Super Sabre?
It might be, but something disturbs the dimensions to Me: The lenght looks short and the intake quite little :-/
And what kind of pod/fin is it at the upper surface of the wing?
VM 165 is an F100D. Most of them had wing fences. You can see them in this model:

TNX! A number of the RDAF F100' were D's but I've never noticed upper wing fences on Danish F-100's.

The F100 is one of my favourite planes. I think it was the first American fighter that was easily a generation ahead of its British contemporary, the subsonic Hawker Hunter. The two both entered service in 1954, although the Hunter had taken a lot longer to develop. It, or something equivalent, should have been in service at about the same time as the F86.
I remember seeing an old plane at an airport near Blokhus. My failing memory says it was Aalborg and the plane was either a Draken or a Starfighter. Can you clarify? There were German tourists swimming at Blokhus, but it was far too cold for me :-)

As a declared F-100 aficionado, did You notice my picture of the two RDAF Super Sabres in the archetypical 'worn out' -brown painting of the 70's? :

On the road towards Blokhus one passes the entrance for Aalborg airbase shortly after the tunnel under the Limfjorden and it's definately a Starfighter they have pinned there!
. . . . Leading to: Could we fill a 'Pinned fighters' subforum with such pictures?
And between us two: Germans have something with water ;-)
