  •  They BOTH flew F9F Panthers... (6+ / 0-)

    ...and, although Williams was Glenn's wingman, there does not seem to be a record of the fight you describe.

    Glenn did INDEED fly the F-86, on a second tour in Korea, when on a exchange with the USAF. I believe his kills came on the F-86 not the Panther.

    •  I tried the NYT search engine, to no avail (6+ / 0-)

      Williams book was in 2005. Glens book was in 1999. I recall it was around 1999, but was Williams telling the story, it was Williams thinking that this guy was going to get me killed. DARN IT.

      Imagine those 2 guys with their hand to eye coordination in F86's.
