Re: Aircraft Used in Korea-AD's
Data on the air war in Korea: The five Australian P-51-s that strafed us .50 cal MGs and rockets for 20 minutes on 4 July, 1950 taught us one thing. The only man they hit was the guy who crawled under the mess truck. The lesson from this was obvious, and not to just avoid mess trucks. They taught us as they taught many Koreans and others later, that airplanes do not hit you.
Carl Bernard, then with Task Force Smith just south of Osan where we fought our first battle. It rained that day (5 July) so we had no air support.
