Korean Air War Aviator Slang Quiz F-H

Welcome to your Korean Air War Aviator Slang Quiz F-H.

How familiar are you with the language and acronyms pilots and ground crews used to describe their world of air combat during the Korean War?

The BelleAire Press Korean War Air Combat vocabulary quiz series highlights selected terms excerpted from the extensive glossary included in Truckbusters from Dogpatch, the Combat Diary of the 18th Fighter-Bomber Wing in the Korean War, 1950-1953.

After more than fifty years, the 18th Fighter-Bomber Wing's Mission 1890, the riveting story of the Korean War’s most heroic—and costly—helicopter rescue is now available for download as an e-publication. Baited Trap, The Ambush of Mission 1890 tells the story for the first time of perhaps the most dangerous Korean War rescue mission in compelling detail gleaned from formerly classified official records, first person accounts, and family documents long unknown.
