Korean War Call-up of the 142nd Fighter Group
North American F-86A-5-NA Sabre jet fighter, serial number 49-1010, rests on the ramp at O’Hare Airport circa 1951-1952, when the squadron was part of Oregon’s federalized 142nd Fighter Group. Of note, this aircraft was initially assigned to the Washington ANG’s federalized 116th Fighter Squadron and deployed from Moses Lake AFB, Washington, to England as part of the 81st Fighter-Interceptor Wing in September 1951. It was then returned to the US and service with the 62nd FIS at O’Hare 1951-1952 before going to the California ANG. On 20 November 1957 this Sabre was flown to the boneyard in Arizona where it was “reclaimed” on 27 May 1958. (Image courtesy of Marty Isham via Wikipedia)
