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 ?

No really... HE was shot down on 12 Feb 1953. I can try to see if can get some info on the actions on this day.

Regarding his possible survival and subsequent transfer to USSR, I think there are people working on such cases: U.S.-Russia Joint Commission on POW/MIA Affairs (USRJC)

https://sofrep.com/97178/renewed-us-russia-talks-focus-pow-mia-issues/

The Commission is organized into four working groups, each representing a key area of investigation. These groups encompass World War II; the Korean War; the Vietnam War; and the Cold War.

"U.S.-Russia Joint Commission on POW/MIAs" official page with minutes of meeting:  http://www.dpaa.mil/Resources/Fact-Sheets/Article-View/Article/569603/us-russia-joint-commission-on-powmias/
