A U.S. Air Force LT-6G aircraft flies in the demilitarized zone over South Korea in the fall of 1953. The North American Aviation T-6 Texan was modified during the Korean War for battlefield surveillance and forward air control, and designated as T-6 "Mosquitos." The photo's were taken by U.S. Air Force pilot Alexander P. Macdonald. He later became the North Dakota Air National Guard's 119th Fighter Group commander Feb. 28, 1968. He was promoted to brigadier general Dec. 14, 1981 and major general in June, 1983. He was appointed as the North Dakota adjutant general in August, 1984.

Fred Christensen was assigned to the 56th Fighter Group in the Summer of 1943, as a replacement pilot. He shot down his first aircraft in November 1943. On 7 July 1944, Christensen became the first pilot in the 8th Air Force to shoot down six enemy aircraft on one mission. He claimed a total of 21.5 aircraft.

Whilst serving with the 56th Fighter Group, Christensen adopted a stray cat, which he named Sinbad. Sinbad supposedly flew missions with Christensen, who felt he was a good luck charm- they both returned to the United States on the completion of Christensen's tour of duty in September 1944. Following the war Christensen became a pilot in the Air National Guard, he retired in 1970.

Aircraft included P-47s 'Rozzi Geth,' 'Miss Fire' and 'Rozzi Geth II. '
