I have a Semester project for Intro to Computer Tech at my school and our project is to design a website on a certain topic. Now I chose, being the aviation person I am, major Korean War aircraft. I need info on the major fighters of both sides(F86, F80, Yak9, MIG15, p51, etc.) and bombers(b29, TU-2, etc.). I was going to do WWII, but alot of people did that already and I wanted to be different http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thx in advance.

Do some research on American F-86 Sabre pilot, Ralph Parr.

With talk of an armistice only weeks away, F-86 pilot Ralph Parr was afraid that the Korean War would be over before he would get into air combat. Flying a routine patrol over the Yalu, Parr spotted a glint of light low against the ground and suspected enemy aircraft. Rolling into a Split-S, Parr dove his F-86F down from 41,000 feet and closed rapidly on the suspicious image. Soon he saw four MiG-15s right in front of him, but a quick look left and right revealed that there was really a total of 16 enemy aircraft. Not one to miss an opportunity, Parr engaged the closest aircraft and was immediately in a boiling dogfight right on the deck. After destroying two Migs and damaging another the remaining aircraft fled for the North. Ralph Parr finished the Korean War a double ace, shooting down ten enemy aircraft in just 30 missions over five weeks.
