Comments: I am trying to gather information about the air combat operations of USN squadrons in Korea. In case of VF-191 I am especially interested in any information about the MiG encounter of 20 August 1952 during strikes on the west coast of Korea in coordination with USAF and USMC; but also any of the several encounters by CVG-19 aircraft from Princeton with MiG's 7 October 1952. Any further info on any of these encounters, or others, first hand or not, would be helpful.
