USAF Pilots With 4 Air Kills Over Korea
 
Gentlemen,

Can find about these Korean War USAF pilots who didn't quite make ace. Those who got four air kills over Korea. I don't know how many of them or about their names. Maybe a list for now?

Sincerely,

Edward L. Hsiao

Gentlemen,

Thank you so much. I know that several USAF pilots with four air kills during the Korean War had a few probables as well in their records. These fighter pilots of course couldn't make ace officially. Can you name some fighter pilots?

Sincerely,

Edward L. Hsiao

Gentlemen,

I know that Col. John W. Mitchell had 11 air-to-air victories over the Japanese during WWII and had a few unconfirmed kills over MiG-15 jet fighters during the Korean War. He had 4 confirmed kills over MiG-15s.

Captain Philip Colman had 5 air-to-air victories over the Japanese during WWII. During the Korean War,4 confirmed kills over MiG-15s. He also had a few unconfirmed kills over these jet fighters as well.

I just wonder if other jet fighter pilots of the USAF that had four kills over MiG-15s had unconfimed kills too. Some of them were fighter pilots of WWII and had scored air-to-air kills in that war.

Sincerely,

Edward L. Hsiao
