This web page is devoted to the 'Sweet Rose' / 'Dreaded Gomboo' F-86F Sabre Jet Fighter, and my fathers service for the Air Force. My father Walter Yocum was the crew chief for FU-539, and Lt. Ken Ewing was the pilot. The plane was stationed at U.S. Air base K-14, Kimpo, North Korea back in the year of 1954. He was part of the Fabulous Rocketeers (336th Rocketeer Squadron). This web site contains various pictures of the F-86F, and when he was stationed at the air bases below (in correct timeline).
