Comments: I have the Red Lighting patch of my father when he flew from the USS Philipine Sea during Korea and sat in #104 (both 1st & 2nd Panthers to have that #) when I was young. I did have his helmet with the Lightning, but lost it after 1990. My father, Lt. Fred D. Turnbull, was also known as "Shorty" and passed away in 2006. He is buried at Arlington National Cemetery.

Comments: 5186 E Monte Vista Rd I joined the squadron in 1953 and made cruises on the Hornet and the Kearsarge in 1954,1955 and 1956. After my discharge VF-91 apparently merged with VF-94 to become VF-194.

Comments: Pete Pritts and me worked four F9F-2 Panther jets - He handled two 20mm ammo cans up higher in the nose and I took care of the two cans that were accessible through the nose wheel well (I fit in that wheel well more easily). Together we worked six 100 lb frag bombs or six HVAR's; whatever the mission called for.

Comments: My book on the F4U Corsair in the Korean War just got published.Currently, I am writing a hard bound book that will cover the History of Naval Aviation in the Korean War. It will contain squadron/detachment histories, comments from squadron personnel and plenty of color slides and photographs showing the aircraft. If anyone has anything that might help me, please let me know.
