These are Korean War era fighter jets, maybe Republic F-84 Thunderjets, according to Richard McCoy of Huntington. "It's a rare sight in Huntington, because the U.S. Air Force didn't have many jets until after we were into the Korean War for some time," he said. "The Russians furnished and flew MIG jets for North Korea, which were very advanced, compared to these types and WWII prop driven fighters, that the U.S. was using." The date is unknown, although the photo is likely from the late 1940s to early 1950s.

Gallery: Do you remember? -- March 28, 2011

We have a treasure trove of old negatives and photos at The Herald-Dispatch. Some of the images, we know. Others, we have no idea.

We are scanning the negatives and photos and running some of the photos in the newspaper.

These photos were from a box of 4x5 negatives. They are most likely from the late 1940s to early 1950s.

Browse through the gallery. If you can add caption information to any of the photos (or correct a caption we already have), e-mail online editor Andrea Copley-Smith at acopley@herald-dispatch.com or call 304-526-2764. Be sure to include the title of the gallery, details of the photo, your name and phone number.
