The North American Aviation F-100 Super Sabre, often nicknamed The Hun’ (for Hundred), was the first production aircraft to exceed the speed of sound in level flight. North American’s F-86 Sabre and some other early jet aircraft easily broke the sound barrier in a dive. The rocket-powered Bell X-l series also broke the sound barrier, but they could not take off under their own power. The ‘Hun’ could break the barrier at any time and it was a true air-craft, breathing air to make power and able to take off and land under its own power. Based as an evolution of the F-86 design series, the F-100 was truly a ‘Super Sabre.’
