I am a photo archivist and have aquired a 400 ft 16mm home movie of an air show in Topeka, Ks at Forbes Field either 1957 or 1958 (I think?) with the Minutemen F-86 doing their thing in the air. It also has a B-58, F-100 Thunderbirds and other great aircraft.

I went to the 2009 Planes of Fame air show in Chino California. I have gone to several air shows in the S. California area in past years but this is the first time I had a professional camera and was able to get some great shots of the beautiful aircrafts that were at the show. I will be posting pictures of an F6F Hellcat, F8F Bearcat, B-25 Mitchell, MiG-15, F86-F Sabre and a P-40 Warhawk. Hope you enjoy the pictures.

Answer to Joe Lupton in Smithfield, VA. Send me an email at ldjinaz28@yahoo.com., Joe. You were a very good student and hope I did you right. I did fly the F model the last few missions in Korea. It was a great airplane.

Mike, I just learned that your grandfather (L. D. Juhlin) and my grandfather (Donald E. Adams) confirmed each others' kills in 1952. In fact, your grandfather is supposed to be calling me soon.

I have a small website devoted to the F86-F that my father was a crew chief for: FU-539 'Sweet Rose' 'Dreaded Gomboo' (1954 Kimpo). The website is http://sweetrose.yocumusa.com/

My first flight instructor in 1964 was an F-86 pilot in Korea named Dean Juhlin. He was supposed to have shot down two Migs. He was running the FBO at Martinsville, Va at the time he instructed me through my Private License. I think he said he was also a factory test pilot for the F-105, and flew on a Demo Team also.
I have been trying to run him down, but can find no records on him at all. The FAA has not been able to come up with any status on him either. Any info would be appreciated.
