This is the story of the first war in which jet aircraft played a central role. Once-formidable fighters such as the P-51 Mustang, F4U Corsair, and Hawker Sea Fury, all piston-engined, propeller-driven, relinquished their air superiority roles to a new generation of faster, jet powered fighters arriving in the theater. For the initial months of the war, the P-80 Shooting Star, F9F Panther, and other jets under the UN flag dominated North Korea's prop-driven air force. The balance would shift with the arrival of the swept wing Soviet MiG -15 and shift again in the skies over MiG Alley with the introduction of the legendary F-86 Sabre. It takes you through those desperate early days of the war when air power alone kept the North Koreans from driving UN forces into the sea. Includes interviews with veterans and experts, as well as commentary by legendary fighter pilot and former Air Force Chief of Staff General Tony McPeak.
