This Sabre was flown by the CO of the 16thFS of the 51stFW Lt Col Edwin L Heller. Heller was a veteran of WW2 having flown P-51's with the 352FG of the 8thAF. He was an ace of that war with 5 aerial kills and 15 strafing victories. All his aircraft were named "HELL-ER BUST".
He claimed two Migs over Korea before being shot down over Manchuria after aggressively pursuing in contravention of UN orders which forbade entering Chinese airspace. He was injured by cannon fire from a Mig15 and ejected. He was captured and made a POW.
At the time he was not flying this aircraft. However this aircraft crashed and was written off on 20 July 1953.
