    Always found it interesting the development of jet fighters just prior to the Korean War and how in 1950 the West was surprised when the Mig-15 suddenly showed up during the conflict and overall changed the air tactics. Especially when flown by Russian pilots, which was kept a secret by both sides for decades, long after the truce in '53. Would also love to delve into the Russian archives about their day-to-day operations over North Korea and how they felt about their air adversary... the F-86 Sabre. Plus I think it's time for a movie about "Mig Alley", to those aircrews who served and died over a forgotten war, with an strong emphasis on using Russian pilots in the conflict.

    Have seen that movie dozens of times... "All right, knock it...this is Cleaver Saville...we were flying together when all a pilot had for breakfast was a cigarette and a hangover..he's the big hunter..he's the iceman".

    Just feel it's time for a newer movie version of the Korean air war..I'd be first in line.
