Capt. Manuel Fernandez Jet Ace by 


This is a photo of Capt Fernandez taken by Don Miller in 1953 during the Korean War. Taken at Kimpo Air Base, Korea K-14. I have seen him coming around the revetment from a mission over North Korea holding up 2 fingers which meant he had shot down 2 russian mig 15 aircraft. The gunports were black from the 50 caliber maching guns. He flew the F-86 Sabre Jet which had three 50 cal maching guns on each side of the nose of the plane. Sometimes he would sit in the cockpit for several minutes until his body recouperated from pulling too many Gs
