Glenn Eagleston flew Mustangs in WWII and F-86 Sabre jets in Korea. He was born in Utah on March 12, 1921, and joined the US Army Air Corps as an enlisted man in 1940. He became an aviation cadet in 1942, graduating at Luke Field in September. After a brief stint with the 20th Fighter Group, he transferred to the 354th and moved with that Group to England in October 1943. He Totaled 18 ½ Aerial Victories in WWII.
After WW2, he served again in Korea, where he flew 84 missions and commanded the Fourth Fighter Group. He destroyed two MiG-15's. On December 22, 1950, he downed a MiG 15 over the Yalu, one of the earliest Sabre vs. MiG kills. On April 22, 1951, a day of very heavy aerial combat (Jabara claimed four), Eagleston shot down his second MiG. It was his last aerial victory, in a fighter pilot career that had spanned ten years, two aircraft types, and two continents.
