              HISTORY
          Gen. Harrison R. Thyng, one of the earliest commanders and WWII ace, led the group on the first ever
          Pacific-crossing of single seat fighters flying P-47N aircraft from the west coast to Ie Shima. He later
          added five more kills flying F-86s becoming one of only six US Airmen who were both a piston and jet ace.
         The Group's annual award for the outstanding airman is named in his honor.

         Capt. Manuel "Pete" Fernandez was the third leading ace in Korea with 15 kills before being assigned to the
         413th flying the F-100.

         Before Gen. Robbie Risner rose to fame as a Vietnam hero and POW, he first served as the commander of
         the 413th Fighter Day Group's 34th Fighter Day Squadron flying the F-100 Super Sabre.

         Another well-known aviator, Gen. Chuck Yeager, served as the 413th Director of Operations alongside Risner. 
        These men set the standard for the men and women of the 413th FTG, today and tomorrow.
