Korea photos – runway at Suwon AB (K-13) in 1953

E-mail received 2 September 2002: “I’ve attached a couple of photos that might be of interest to Korean War era “Headhunters”. One is on my website and was given me by a pilot in my uncle’s squadron (36th FBS) and shows three F-86F Sabres from the 80th FBS getting ready to take off down the runway at Suwon AB (K-13) in 1953. The other photo showing an 80th FBS F-80C with bombs was taken by a former Public Information Officer (PIO) at K-13 early in 1953.  Regards, Jim Escalle”

Our thanks to Jim for sending in these two great photos.
Notice the Squadron tail stripes in both photos.
