"Mig 15 versus F-86 Sabre Jet during the Korean War was one of the classic fighter aircraft duels of all time" Zeno

In September, 1953, a North Korean defector handed over the first Russian Mig 15 to fall into US hands. This was a momentous occasion because the Mig had proven to be a worthy adversary for the North American F-86 Sabre in the skies over Korea.

The Mig was immediately subjected to comprehensive testing. You'll see Chuck Yeagar and other top test pilots putting the Mig through it's paces and hear what they learned, along with a point by point performance comparison with the F-86. Nice footage of the Mig's armaments too.

Attentive Russian fans will no doubt pick up on the fact that some of the "faults" listed by the US test pilots - like problems with the heating & defrosting systems -- were malfunctions in this particular aircraft and not endemic to the Mikoyan bureau's design.

The film covers a typical mission, from planning through touchdown. One of the highlights of the film is an address by Francis "Gabby" Gabreski, legendary World War II ace and CO of the 51st in Korea.

* "No Sweat" This film was produced by USAFE, (United States Air Force, Europe) to cut down on costly air accidents resulting from pilot error. Seemingly trivial mistakes sometimes led to SNAFUs -- or worse. You'll follow a pilot through what should be an uneventful hop, but turns into anything but.. The real star of the show is the featured aircraft, an F-86D -- the all weather version -- which is shown in considerable detail.
