Question James K. Johnson,USAF

Gentlemen,

Colonel James K. Johnson, F-86 Sabre ace,had claimed 10 air to air victories in combat plus 3 probables and 7 damaged during the Korean War. Does anybody have a list of his kills. I don't know got into me but I suspect that Johnson's air combat record is somewhat high and not truthful. Just a thought.

Sincerely,

Edward L. Hsiao

Re: James K. Johnson,USAF

Dear Sir,

Thank you for the information about James K. Johnson's air-to-air kill record. All in the few months of 1953 eh? I think most of his opponents MiG-15s of the Soviet Air Force.

Sincerely,

Edward L. Hsiao
