    Two questions fellas, has anyone ever seen a pic or anything of "13" from the 80th FS or the same from 459 FS? John "Swede" Svenningson transferred from the 26th FS/51st FG to take over as CO for 89th FS, anyone know if he was assigned his own aircraft?

    88th Fighter Squadron (10-39)
    89th Fighter Squadron (40-69)
    90th Fighter Squadron (70-99)
    459th Fighter Squadron (100-127)(1-25)

    I think I might have a small article or two somewhere Jan, but don't know about the pics content. I'll find it and let you know.

    Well, had a look, and there were a few pics. But nothing with '13' I'm afraid, the nearest being '53' ....not a lot of use!
