"Nova's concised chronicles reviews on F-86& MIG-15 including thir dog fighting during Korean War are wonderful! which is endough to understand even amateur. I already had interest with NOVA's lost series,Hitler's lost subs and B-29-Frozen in times getting from Amazon.
After 1st apperance of MIG-15 attacking to F-51D ON Nov,1,1950 in Korean War,there had been continuous dog fightings, F-86 Vs MIG-15 from 1950-1953.31 american F-86 pilots disapperad during this period.
in 1953,armistice,15 F-86 pilots came back to their families.
After soviet president's address on U.S.congress,in 1992,Soviet disclosed
many secret documents which handling Missing american soldiers during Korean War. In this video,desarately struggling 3 missing pilot familie's
effots were disclosed.but only dne case(Capt.Troy Gorden Cope) apperd as
crashing death on spot.unidentified 2 families express thier continuous
seach in misty futures.
On this video, Soviet MIG-15 pilot Col.Orlov disclosed the fact that he shot down a F-86E with small damage which sent to Moskow for it's restoreation.in these occasion, pilot fled back to UN force.
I like another news which include soviet pilot Abakumov's claiming
a F-86 was forced down to crashland near Pyongyang and pilot was taken prisoner(quoted from "Red wings over Yalu.by Xiaming Zahung,2002)
In these occasion,I like my father's staements,as the rare eyewitnes., as followings:
1)1st dogfight in Korean War on June27,1950. over Seoul: F-82G Vs YAK-7U
2)1st apperance of F-8OC jet fighter over Seoul sky on June27,1950
3)1st apperance of B-26 formations over Seoul on June28,1950.
4)1st B-29 bombing on Seoul railroad station on June28,1950.
5) F7F-3N's strafing Seoul railroad Tunnel.
6) a shot down scene of F4U-4 by communist small arms.
