This series of four pictures taken from gun camera film show the beginning of the end of a Russian-built MiG in an air battle high over North Korea, May 18, 1954.

The”kill” was recorded by the camera in a U.S. Air Force F-86 “Sabre” jet flown by 2nd Lt James L. Thompson of 210 Thomas Drive, Monroe Park, Wilmington, DE, a member of the 51st Fighter Interceptor Wing who was credited with the destruction. During a combat patrol in MiG Alley, two MiGs jumped Lt Thompson’s element leader. The two “Sabare” pilots then lined up on the enemy pilot who, using his speed brakes to slow his flight, caused the “Sabre” jet leader to overshoot. Lt Thompson, in the meantime, lined up on his quarry and opened fire. These pictures tell what followed.

This unusual sequence of photos, taken by gun camera film of a U.S. Air Force F-86 “Sabre” jet fighter-interceptor shows a Communist MiG-15 pilot abandoning his aircraft after it has been hit by the “Sabre’s” gunfire. The MiG-kill went to 2Lt Edwin E. Aldrin Jr, Montclair, NJ, on May 14, 1950 during a 6-day period which saw Air Force “Sabre” pilots destroy 36 Red MiG jets.
