With his .50 caliber gun muzzles showing evidence of wear & tear, the pilot of this 26th FIS F-80 (49-0649) drives past the tower at Naha Air Base, Japan.

                 49- 0453 sits quietly beyond the tower. Note the portability of said tower.

Nice day for flying as 49-0635 & co. cruise the Japanese skies in the early 1950’s.
