Auto Credit Based on mikoyanster's Area88Challenge

Maywar Dynamics introduced Thunderbird in 1956. The goal was to create a fast, low-level fighter bomber with a high combat load. Maywar succeeded and the aircraft soon proved itself in a few proxy wars. Thunderbird was officially retired in the early '80s, making it a top pick for the mercenary pilots of Area 88. Group 1 for jettison. Trim is trim. Flaps retract automatically with gear. She wiggles a bit on the ground at high speeds, so stay diligent. Rotation speed is about 220mph... Enjoy!
