Torrential rains in North Korea which have turned creeks and tributaries into swollen flood waters pose no particular stoppage problem to the operations of tactical Fifth Air Force fighter bombers. A pair of sleek, sturdy F-51 "Mustangs" of the 18th Fighter Bomber Wing cross this swollen stream with complete indifference as they head toward their target to spew destruction on Communist military objectives with their heavy armament loads of rockets, napalm, bombs, and machine gun fire. (circa August 1951)
