USMC Major John H. Glenn Jr. had flown with VMF-311 but became an exchange pilot assigned to the USAF 25th Fighter Interceptor Squadron, 51st Fighter Interceptor Group at K13 Suwon, Korea. He was equipped with an F-86F-30 serial number 52-4548 with the names of his wife and two children painted on it. Glenn had complained of a lack of MiGs and one morning came out to find "MiG Mad Marine" had been added. During the final two weeks of the war Glenn downed three MiG-15s.

North American F-86F Sabre

Designed to meet a USAAF requirement for a day-fighter/escort fighter/dive-bomber, the F-86 was first flown on October 1st, 1947. The Sabre's swept-wing "flying tail" configuration and a hydraulic flight-control system were some of its many firsts in technology and design that have now become standard for jet-powered aircraft. Armed with six 50 caliber machine guns, the F-86 saw extensive action in the Korean War, where it was often pitted against the MiG-15. The Sabre pilot had to be in visual contact and within gun range of the enemy in order to attempt a shoot-down, thereby making this aircraft the last true "dogfighter" in Air Force inventory.
