If you find out the original Photographer, you could give him/her credit too. Just to save you from any snide comments!

Alton, At least you acknowledge where it came from, so that is a good thing. This is a great photo of "Doc", so thank you for sharing it with us.

My late father-in-law flew these in Korea. Never told me about the horrors of war, but lamented the fact that they could see airstrips being built across the 38th parallel but couldn't go drop a load on them--thereby allowing the Migs a closer place to attack the bombers.
