This was the first encounter between the Russian built swept wing jet fighter and the newly arrived American F-86s. Col. Hinton was forced to use his speed brakes to avoid over-shooting as he gets a close look at the MiG. The F-86s were to destroy 792 MiG-15s during the Korean War, or a loss of 78 F-86s in air combat. *
