Two generations of North American fighters. FRANK B. MORMILLO'S photograph depicts P-51D-30-NT Mustang 45-11582 being flown by Mike DeManno in formation with a pair of QF-86F Sabres from the Pacific Missile Test Center at NAS Point Mugu, California. The pilot flying Sabre No 36 is Mike DeManno's brother, Cdr Tom DeManno, while Sabre No 32 is being flown by Lt Cdr Michael O. Jones. The Sabres are modified for use as remote control targets but can also be flown conventionally when not being used as targets.
