Wild Weasel Mitchell in Korea

In his book "Wild Weasel" (Squadron Signal 1986) Larry Davis speak of TB 25J Mitchell "ferrets" leading B 26 in hunter-killer missions in Korea.

Can you confirm this ?

Thank you very much

Alain

Re: Wild Weasel Mitchell in Korea

For what it is worth, there is a reference to such missions on page 15 of this Master's Thesis written for the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College.

Slightly off topic but there is a long article about ferret operations in the Pacific during WWII (starting on page 9) here:
