7. this stuff goes way back

During the Korean war, Russian pilots flew MIG's against our F-86 pilots.. Koreans did not have much experience and there was a gaggle of ex WW2 russian combat pilots looking for work.. Reports of dead MIG pilots with red hair tipped us off... Later on, info came out that the russian pilots were told not to fall into American hands and kill them selfs instead..
