Re: F-86 vs MiG 15, the claims...

I saw the "History Channel" story of one F-86 ace who chased a MiG into China to shoot it down but then had to ditch his jet on the way home. No gun camera and I believe no wingman. I wish I could remember the pilot's name to see if he got credit or just a good "probable" story.

Also the "incidents" early in the war of Russian airbases getting attacked by mistake. Where there any MiGs destroyed there?

Several had crossed the border in hot pursuit. Can be Maj Robinson Risner of the 336th FIs 4th FIW or Capt Ralph Parr of the 335th FIS 4th FIW. This last had shot down two MiGs of the 535th IAP over Dapu(Fencheng)the 7th June 1953.

Re: F-86 vs MiG 15, the claims...

About the attack on Russian airfields: Two F-80C of the 49th FBG straffed Sukhaya Rechka, near Vladivostok the October 8th 1950, some sixty-two miles from the border with Korea in Soviet Union.

United States eventually volunteered an explanation to the UN. According to General Douglas MacArthur, commander in chief of the combined forces in Korea, the attack against Sukhaya Rechka was a mistake due to navigational error and poor judgement. The air force commander was relieved, the pilot were disciplined, and the United States offered to pay damages.

After Sukhaya Rechka was attaked, all V-VS regiments in the Far East were placed on Alert-1, the first time since the end of the Second World War.

No MiGs were deployed at Sukhaya Rechka; only P-63 Kingcobras of the 821th IAP 190th IAD.Seven planes were damaged and one destroyed. The others were repaired.No human losses were suffered. After two straffing runs the F-80C returned to base and... poor guys. Also, for sure the V-VS base commander of Sukhaya Rechka had not a easy life, the day after, October 9th.
