"MiG Alley" is the name given by United Nations (UN) pilots to the northwestern portion of North Korea, where the Yalu River empties into the Yellow Sea. During the Korean War, it was the site of numerous dogfights between UN fighter pilots and their opponents from North Korean (including some unofficially crewed by Soviet airmen) and the Peoples Republic of China.
Soviet-built Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-15 were the aircraft used during most of the conflict and the area's nickname was derived from them. Because it was the site of the first large-scale jet-vs-jet air battles, with the North American F-86 Sabre, the MiG Alley is considered the birthplace of jet fighter combat.

Merry christmas and happy new year to all !
Since the MiG driver was probably a Russian, "Dasv'danya, motherf***er!"
God, the F-86 was the last truly beautiful fighter.
Actually, the ROKs (South Koreans) had the most troops in the fight. The next largest percentage was the US, but we weren't anywhere near totally committed, as it was considered a regional war by the Powers-That-Be in Washington. The British and Commonwealth forces were also significantly involved. The "UN Command" was commanded by General Douglas MacArthur, and the majority of Allied air assets in Korea were also American. We should never diminish the contributions of our allies in the Forgotten War, especially the fact that the ROKs carried their weight and then some.
Off topic, if you haven't heard of him before, look up Capt. T.J. Hudner, USN and read his Medal of Honor citation. It's one of the greatest, and saddest, stories of the air war in Korea.
WOW!... Very great!...
It shows very well the kind of aerial combat. It is really beautiful. Continue, you really do a great job and I love it!
