Great shot from the USS Midway, Walter. Thanks for the memory.
According to one of its pilots in November of 1952, Captain Williams, this particular F9F-5 took out three of seven Mig-15s in one aerial battle! This fighter had roughly 8,000 lbs of thrust with after burning thanks to a Pratt & Whitney - Rolls Royce joint developed J48 powerplant. Pretty impressive aircraft for its time.
