Re: Korea- November 1950

The encounter between MiG's and Leyte's air group was Nov 12, not 13th, as both sides agree.
Yes, sorry I have reversed the dates of 12 and 13th November.

When I spoke to P. Ovsyannikov about Nasonov he said that he was wounded by single (!) "large caliber" bullet in the neck, and overturned his plane on landing after hitting an airplane shelter by wing. The plane by his words was not written off, but repaired and used in combat again.
A fine work of the wounded Nasonov to take back to the base this MiG.
Thanks FPSolkor.
