I wanted to save this last #VeteransDay profile for today since it is the anniversary of the "secret" dogfight Lt. Royce Williams and his F9F-5 Panther was in. Last month I featured the Soviet Mig-15 for "Black Tuesday" in the #KoreanWar , but this was a day that the Soviet Mig-15 pilots did not do so well. It is generally accepted that the Mig-15 is a superior jet compared to the F9F-5 (slide for pictures of that on the #USSMidway in #SanDiego). On November 18, 1952, Lieutenant Royce Williams flew his F9F-5 Panther into combat against seven Mig-15s from Vladivostok in the Sea of Japan. He is credited with taking down four of them. The Soviet pilots ended up putting 263 holes in his #F9F, but he was able to do a hot landing on the carrier. Lt. Williams was told that a new agency, the NSA (formed on Nov. 4, 1952), had tracked the whole dogfight and were able to credit him with the kills, but he was to never talk about it. At the time, there were concerns that the Korean War might turn into another world war. The public was not to know that the Soviets were fighting secretly/covertly with their jets in the war. When the #ColdWar ended he was able to talk about it. I did a major abbreviation of the story, but the following pdf is a good source for the whole story: http://www.epnaao.com/PDF/Four-Down.pdf

Korean People’s Air Force defector Lt. No Kum-Sok’s MiG-15bis seen arriving at Kadena Airbase on Okinawa and going through flight and armament tests with the USAF in late September 1953. I’ve talked about this historical event a few times in the past, but for those who are unfamiliar with this incident, I’ll reiterate.

Kum-Sok, who served in the KPAF’s 2nd Regiment, flew out from Sunan (just outside of Pyongyang) on the morning of September 21, 1953 and made his way to Kimpo Air Base outside of Seoul just over fifteen minutes later. Radar around Kimpo was temporarily down at the time for routine maintenance, allowing Kum-Sok to arrive undetected. He actually landed at the base downwind, nearly colliding with an F-86 of the 4th Fighter-Interceptor Wing piloted by Capt. Dave William, who, after veering out of the way, hollered over the intercom, “It’s a goddamn MiG!” Kum-Sok actually taxied the MiG into an empty space between a pair of Sabres, where was taken into custody and brought to several interrogation HQs.

Meanwhile his plane was quickly shipped off to Okinawa and put through extensive tests. He received $100,000 from the UN’s Operation Moolah program (which requested the defection of an intact MiG), of which he was ironically unaware. Interestingly the USAF offered to return to MiG but no takers came forward, and thus the plane was shipped to the U.S. where it has been on display ever since.

This M16 halftrack belongs to the 32nd Infantry Regiment, 7th Infantry Division and has been parked in an interesting position. Looks like it’s been backed into a dugout or redoubt constructed from timbers offering some procession from enemy fire, and judging by the looks of the GIs off to the right I’d say they’re letting off a few rounds from the M45 Quadmont. By the way, the photo is dated April 25, 1953.

“USS Princeton was one of 24 Essex-class aircraft carriers built during and shortly after World War II for the United States Navy. The ship was the fifth US Navy ship to bear the name, and was named for the Revolutionary War Battle of Princeton.” “On 1 May, Air Group 19 assaulted the dam with eight Skyraiders that were equipped with Mk 13 torpedoes and escorted by twelve Corsairs. Seven of eight torpedoes struck the dam and six exploded. The attack alleviated the dam as a flood threat, destroying one sluice gate and damaging several others. One of the participating U.S. Navy squadrons, VA-195 was renamed from Tigers to Dambusters. This raid constitutes the last time globally that an aerial torpedo was used against a surface target, and was the only time torpedoes were used in the Korean War.”

F-4E Phantom II
Tail Number 49421

Can’t seem to find any information on this old guy. I assume this phantom is a Vietnam Veteran due to its current location at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on Lackland AFB.

Before Jacob and Belle ever started writing letters, they were two average teenagers who practically grew up together and fell in love. They had their whole future mapped out before them. College, marriage, kids and a house with a white picket fence. But fate had other plans, when Jacob was drafted into the Korean War in 1951. Read some of their private thoughts from their journal and diary entries before their lives would change forever in... Letters Away: A Poetic Journey
Jacob Tanner is a man who’s been writing poetry since he was very young. After he was drafted into the Korean War he continued writing his poetry as a means to explore the complex emotions of love, loss, and fear. His new bride, Belle, followed suit and started expressing some of her innermost feelings through poetry as well. For the first time, they’ve decided to share some of their poetry with the public through this series of beautiful poems. In this collection, we start to understand how much they miss each other, their deep and abiding love for each other, as well as their hopes and dreams for the future. As their biographers, they’ve allowed Elias Raven and Sharon Johnson to share another part of their continued journey together…

Here we have a young digger running some #prototypeshit NFE.
It was common for charlie to use the night to sneak up our contiki camp. So the skullfuckers from the bun RAR created this monster, so the SNCOs could maintain the rage on the local talent until the sun rose on another magical day of slaying commies in the J.
In our element we were unstoppable. We owned the night, and the darkness could not hide our prey.
