Framed against a rugged, snow covered mountain peak in North Korea, a 5th Air Force F-86 Sabre, of the 4th Fighter - Escort Wing, has complete command of the skies as it heads homeward after another strike at the enemy. In the short time they have been fighting for the U.S. Far East Air Forces in Korea, the Sabres have proven their superiority over the best aircraft that the Reds have used thus far. Photo taken ca.01/1951. (National Archives)

Bombs Away-Regardless of the type of enemy target lying in this rugged, mountainous terrain of Korea, very little will remain after the falling bombs have done their work. This striking photograph of the lead bomber was made from a B-29 Superfort of the Far East Air Forces 19th Bomber Group on the 150th combat mission the 19th Bomber Group has flown since the start of the Korean war. Photo taken  ca.02/1951. (National Archives)

Over North Korea--Bombardiers in B-26s of the Fifth Air Force's 452 Light Bomb Wing used the Y in the tracks as an aiming point, and the accuracy of their calculations is attested by these two fiery blossoms of napalm, both directly astride a line filled with enemy railroad cars. The locale of this dramatic photo is a marshalling yard on the main rail line leading south from Wonsan, important East coast port city. Photo taken  ca.04/23/1951. (National Archives)

Bombs Away-This Fifth Air Force B-26 Invader of the 452nd Bombardment Wing drops its load of general purpose bombs on a vital Communist target in North Korea. Continued interdiction bombing of enemy supply centers, troop concentrations and communication lines is depriving the Communist troops of sorely needed war supplies. Photo taken ca.05/29/1951.

This unusual photograph was snapped a split second after two napalm fire bombs were released over North Korea, from shackles underneath the wing of an F-51 Mustang of the Fifth Air Force's veteran 18th Fighter Bomber Wing. The bomb nearest camera plummets earthward head first, while the other retains its horizontal position. A sister plane at far left will follow up with the same type of destructive missles on this industrial military target in Communist hands. Photo taken  ca.08/1951. (National Archives)

TROUBLE FOR ENEMY TARGETS. FIFTH AIR FORCE, KOREA. This U.S. Air Force B-26 light bomber of the 3rd Bomb Wing has its 14 forward firing .50 caliber machine guns tested prior to a night mission against enemy targets in North Korea.
