The Korean War began 60 years ago (June 25, 1950- July 27, 1953) and it was the first war to see jet vs. jet combat. The F-86 and MiG-15 are the two jet aircraft most commonly associated with the war but did you know that there were other jet types being flown at the same time?

Here are some of the other jets flying back then…
