An F-86F Sabre displays both 13th and 14th Fighter Squadron colors on its tail as it sits in Risner Circle at Misawa Air Base, Japan, Dec. 18, 2018. By mid-1953, Fifth Air Force described the aircraft as the most-suitable fighter-bomber during the Korean War. The aircraft didn’t have operating problems and was noted for its stability at high altitudes. The aircraft remains emblazoned today with both 3rd Air Wing and 35th Fighter Wing shields, symbolizing the U.S.-Japan alliance. (U.S. Air Force photo)
