Colonel William F. Barns with a new F-100 (9)

Barns has just arrived at Itazuke Air Base with a shiny new F-100 and, of course, has everybody’s attention. Barns was used to that – he already held a few speed records and was recognized as one of the great pilots of the era. The other men are Colonel Orville Rehmann, 8th FBW commander, and Colonel Ladson Eskridge, 43rd Air Division commander.
