"Aces of The Eighth" by Jack Fellows

Photos from Gene Gould – Korea 1952-1953 » “The black and white of the 50,000th Sortie were all taken by the 8th Photo Group (HoboPhoto). There is also another color picture of the 50,000th Sortie. I don’t know who took it. Probably one of the pilots. I found it on the internet. There was a stain on the nose where it had been folded. I restored it. I know the black and white is the official news release because the guys at HoboPhoto gave it to me. As I remember this took place in October 1952, and I didn’t get to Suwon until November 52. The really interesting thing is there is two different crews. Sort of makes you think the guys were lining up to get their picture taken with the painted airplane. I couldn’t put names on them, but I remember all of them. Particularly the one with the handlebar mustache.”
