"Korea" http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

The US planes from WWII were the F-51D (essentially a P-51D), the Corsair, and planes that almost made it, like the Skyraider and I beleive the Bearcat and Tigercat. Also, observation and liason aircraft such as were used in WWII were also used by the US in Korea

La-9s fought in Korea, and they are generally similar to the La-7 except that the La-9 is all metal.

The most famous jets were the F-86 Sabre and the MiG 15

Strangely, the P-47 had been abandoned for air to ground missions by Korea, and the F-51 took on those duties, with high losses

US started with F-80 shooting star
The Russians countered with The Mig15
The US responded with the F-86 Sabre
US also had B-29 (heavy bomber)
F9F-2 Panther (Navy Jet)

I hear the reason that they kept P-47s & the national guards at home was because they were afraid the Soviets might make a grab for North America.

Yup...all of the late D's and N's (mostly N's) were assigned to contintal defense squadrons in the event that the Soviets were to launch an attack on North America.

So they weren't left out...but I'll bet the reason the F-51D went to Korea was based around operational costs. I'm sure the N cost more to maintain or operate overseas.

I believe the Sea Fury and the late Seafire versions were also present. Were British Vampire jets also flying there?

dont forget the f9f panther, the first jet to see service on an aircraft carrier. My grandfather was about the carrier cv40 tarawa, the aircraft aboard were skyraiders, corsairs and f9f panthers

Meteors, Sea Furies, Seafires (MK 47s, I believe), F-84G, Twin Mustang F-82, B-26 (ex-A-26 Invaders), Mustang F-51Ds, F-86 Sabres, Skyraiders, Corsairs (-4s & 5s), FH-1 Phantom Is, Panthers (I thought the FJ-1 was the first carrier jet), F-94s, F7F-3Ns, and F3D Skyknights for the UN participants.

MiG-15s, YaK-3, -9, & 18s, La-7/11, Il-10s were identified in use on the North Korean side

cheers

The T-33 also saw service as a recce airplane, and possibly as a FAC.

An F-80 is credited with the world's first jet-vs-jet air-to-air victory, with Lt. Russell Brown knocking down a MiG-15 while on a B-29 escort mission on November 8, 1950.

Contrary to popular belief, while the MiG-15 did outperform the F-80 at higher altitudes, that advantage was made void at lower altitudes, and the MiG didn't really dominate the F-80, and the Shooting Star did score a fair number of kills against the MiG.

Actually, I think the ponies kicked North Korean backside up and down the penninsula - North Korean pilots were appalingly badly trained, as least at the beginning of the war.
