    This small metal sign was made using aircraft repair metal and rivets. You can see the rivets from both sides of the piece.

    Marked to the "51st FMS"-- which I would assume is the 51st Fighter Maintenance Squadron.

    There are no hooks or attachments to hang, so I am not certain as to how it was originally displayed.

    During the Korean War, the 51st flew the F-80 "Shooting Star" as well as the F-86 "Sabre".

    The 51st had a very impressive Korean War record. It's pilots flew over 45,000 sorties and destroyed 312 MIG-15s. In addition, the famous jet ace Joseph McConnell (16 aerial kills) as well as 13 other aces served in the 51st.
