    USAF Korean war KIA trio F-86 pilot

    Do you have any info on this shoot down ?? Lots of confusing info out ! I believe he crashed into sea ? But some say he was taken to the Chinese as a POW and sent to Russia ?

    Korean war DFC for B-29 Gunner

    I have read some of these us reports and I assume Soviet reports only deal with Soviet flown migs ? China and N Korea flew also April 12 1951 I’m assuming no Soviet flown plane were lost wonder what the numbers on the others ? Also were any Soviet pilots KIA in all Korea can’t find info on net ? Cold War propaganda on both sides seem to fog the true numbers of kills with over estimated and underestimated of losses ! Regardless if he shot down a mig or damaged one it a great DFC I’m proud to own ! i found online 34 mig type crafts shot down by B29s in KW ? In the big picture numbers don’t matter ! Both sides lost so many !

    Korean war DFC for B-29 Gunner

    The fog of war I guess ? I guess both sides over exaggerate their kills ? There is so much info proving both sides wrong ?? Who knows?
