“On one of the Korean War engagements, a MiG pilot was leading F-86F Sabre pilot Major Robinson Risner deep into Manchuria, which was forbidden territory. Over a Chinese airfield with its antiaircraft batteries blazing away, Risner with his wingman, First Lieutenant Joe Logan, accomplished their kill. When Risner and his wingman withdrew through the flak, Logan took a hit in a fuel tank. Are you ready for this? When Logan's tanks had drained virtually dry, Risner told him to shut off his engine. Then Risner, taking care not to block his own Sabre's air intake, eased the nose of his plane into the tailpipe of the other Sabre and pushed his crippled companion 100 miles to Cho-do Island, off the coast of North Korea in the Yellow Sea. Logan bailed out there because of the surety of being picked up by American ships. But after punching out over the Yellow Sea, he drowned before he could be picked up.”
