Korean War Aces

I was wondering, how many aces from the Korean War are still living? I've been wondering that if there are American, Russian, etc. aces that are still living.

Thanks,
James

Re: Korean War Aces

Charles Cleveland is the only American Korean War ace surviving. I do not know about the Russian or Chinese aces.

Enjoy!

Frank.

Korean War Aces

Wow, did not realize there would only be one U.S. Ace still living. I wonder how many Russian or Chinese Aces are still living?

Thank you so much Frank,

James Sontag

Re: Korean War Aces

There is an article here about Korean War Aces on all sides:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...ar_flying_aces


I wonder if Chinese ace Wang Hai is still alive? (He would be 94 years old.)

Russian ace Sergei Makarovich Kramarenko (10 April 1923 – 21 May 2020) just died.
