Legends Of Air Combat: Jets Over Korea
This is the story of the first air war in which jet aircraft played a central role. Once formidable fighters such as the P-51 Mustang and F4U Corsair, both propeller-driven, now relinquished their air superiority role to a new generation of faster, jet-powered fighters. At the beginning of the war, P-80 Shooting Star, F9F Panther, and other jets under the UN flag dominated North Korea's prop-driven air . The balance would shift with the arrival of the Soviet MiG-15 Fagot, and again in the skies over "MiG Alley" with the introduction of the legendary F-86 Sabre.
Jets Over Korea takes you through those desperate early days of the Korean war when air power alone kept the North Koreans from driving UN into the sea. With veteran interviews, dramatic combat footage, and expert commentary featuring legendary fighter pilot and former Air Chief of Staff General Merrill (Tony) McPeak, this DVD is a must for any military history enthusiast.
