      Saw this photo on the front page and it caught my eye.

      I cannot say for certain but there is a good chance Col. Clarence E. 'Bud' Anderson is at the controls of the F-84. I know he was part of the program and one of, if not the only, pilots to fly the role. Of course, it has been awhile since I read his book.

      Nonetheless, interesting photo. Thanks for posting!
