This article on Capt Jesse Allen of the 80th FBS, from the December 1952 issue of Air Training Magazine, was sent in on 26 March 2004 by Mr. Gerry Asher. He said he found it while leafing through a stack of his Dad’s old magazines. Capt Allen retired from the Air Force as a Major General. Both Gerry Asher and Gen Allen are LifeTime Members of our Association!
Thanks, Gerry, for sending this in.
Gen Allen sure enjoyed your photos and outstanding service history. We have a T-33 on display here at McChord Field, WA and my Dad sure had a lot of memories when he was alive flying the F80. Good bird.
