Maj. John Glenn's F-86F Sabre, "MiG Mad Marine" on the Suwon, South Korea, flightline during the Korean War. He actually named his aircraft Lyn Annie Dave for his wife and two kids. However, the flight crew surprised him with a new paint job, a big red M with letters trailing off it, to read "MiG Mad Marine." Major Glenn flew with the 51st Fighter Interceptor Wing as a U.S. Marine Corps exchange pilot, and was responsible for shooting down three MiGs. (Courtesy photo)
