“The first all jet battle took place on November 8, 1950, when F-80s from the 51st Fighter Interceptor Wing knocked heads together with Chinese MiG-15s from Antung across the Yalu River over North Korea. The F-80s were escorting 70 B-29s raiding Sinuiju with about 585 tons of 500 pound incendiary clusters. Lieutenant Russell J. Brown got on the tail of a MiG-15 and shot it down with his six 0.50 inch guns. This was the first air 'kill' of one jet fighter by another.”
