Who is John Rud?

So who is John Rud, and what's the significance of the capitol logo on the side of the plane?


  1. Perhaps the aircraft was based at Bolling Field?

  2. Could be this person - just a guess after looking thru

    Name: John Rud
    Gender: Male
    Birth Date: 27 Jun 1906
    Death Date: 19 Aug 1977
    SSN: 466425090
    Branch 1: AF
    Enlistment Date 1: 7 Mar 1929
    Release Date 1: 30 Apr 1953

  3. 42N, You are good!!!!! The logo on the plane looks much like other logos I've seen for Bolling Field, so I'm guessing that's the significance of it.
