F-86 Sabre wreckage rediscovered

The traditional ‘Ace of Spades’ emblem can be seen on this piece of wreckage discovered within the Colville National Forest. Approved in 1931, the ‘Ace of Spades’ emblem represented the original 116th Observation Squadron. Within a deck of cards, the ace of spades is considered the deadliest. Lt. Laurie Heral believed that wasn’t enough and drove a dagger through the card during a poker game and received credit for the design. (Courtesy Photo)
