Exhibit:Sabres over Korea
|SABRE 012: Escort
A/c: F-86F Sabre
Escort the Thunderjets to strike the enemy airbase at Pyongyang.
Once they have completed their bomb run you may assist in mopping up any grounded aircraft. When all the targets at the base are destroyed continue on your heading and sweep for MiGs.
|MiGMan's Combat Diary
On arrival at Pyongyang I spotted a flight of MiG-15's taking off. Extending the
airbrake I executed a split-S and dropped in behind the leader as he raised his gear.
2 seconds later I reappraised the merits of that move as the rest of the MiG flight hammered my Sabre into little pieces.
He he he - bail out and try again.
A ripping final mission with furious dogfighting and plenty of parked aircraft to strafe.
