USAF F-100D Super Sabre number 56-3065 flying near Cannon
Air Force Base, New Mexico, 1957. (dads notes below suggest this
was one of the F-100s assigned him during his USAF career, although
I don't think that is him at the controls in this photo). I think
he merely took this photo.
The roman numeral sequence suggests a naming practice he
used for his birds: Red Bug I, II, III, IV... etc. His sister
tells me that Red Bug I was likely a childhood car toy, an electric
car he wated or had. The only jet that had "Red Bug"
painted on it were his two Korean era F-86F models.
Notes in dad's handwriting seeming to indicate his assigned jets
during his USAF carreer. The note in the upper right corner indicate
that F-86F number 52-4553 caught fire in flight, the pilot ejected
safely but the plane was lost at sea. Another note he wrote on
a slide adds that 553 was lost while returning from Tsuiki air
