This Sabre was flown by future Mercury astronaut John Glenn.
In 1953 Glenn was a Major in the Marine Corps and had already completed one combat
tour flying F9F Panthers.
He joined the 25thFS of the 51stFW as an exchange pilot and
shot down three Migs in the last two weeks of the war.
However as an exchange pilot his victories are not recorded in the
USAF's official records for the 51stFW.
