1/Lt. John W. Ross

"Here we see John in 1957 next to a F-86F Sabre jet. He wears a B-5 life vest, K-2B flight suit, backpack parachute, flight boots, G-3A g suit and holds a P-3/4 flight helmet and MS22001 oxygen mask. He wears a 336th squadron cap." - Heritage Flight Gear Displays

"My father completed his initial jet flight training at Bryan AFB in December 1954 followed by F-86 training at Nellis AFB which he completed in August 1955. His first squadron assignment was with the 12 Fighter Bomber Squadron at Kadena AB, Okinawa from Sept. 1955 to August 1956. After more research, I learned my initial Guess and assumption that the 12th FBS merged with the 336th Ftr. Day Sqd. was totally incorrect. All I know for sure from his official military record was that he assigned to the 336th Ftr Day Squadron from August 1956 to December 1957, at which time our family returned to the U.S. ,specifically Vance AFB in Enid Oklahoma, where I was born. After completing T-33 Instructor Course Training, he was a T-33 instructor Pilot." - John C Ross, son of John. Thanks John for the info.
