Korea and Vietnam Aviation

Korea and Vietnam Aviation

December 15, 2003 – Permanent

Museum: Air and Space Museum Udvar-Hazy Center

Location: North Side of Boeing Aviation Hangar

Aerial attacks during the Korean and Vietnam wars involved limited campaigns waged with conventional ground weapons. U.S. military aviators provided close support and attacked enemy supply lines. Although air power did not play a decisive role in Korea or Vietnam, U.S. strategic air power did help deter the Soviet Union and China from expanding these wars into global conflicts. See some of the aircraft used by both sides of these conflicts.

Highlights include:

  • McDonnell F-4S Phantom II
  • Grumman A-6E Intruder
  • North American F-86A Sabre
  • Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-15 (Ji-2) FAGOT B
