Shortly after noon on July 27, 1953, U.S. Air Force Capt. Ralph S. Parr Jr. was flying an escort mission near Chunggang-jin is his F-86F Sabre (51-12959) when he noted an unknown airplane in the vicinity. Parr reportedly made several passes by, identifying the plane as a North Korean Ilyushin Il-12. Although later that day the newly signed armistice was to bring an end to the Korean War, he decided to shoot down the plane, thereby obtaining the double-ace status. One long burst of gunfire was enough to cause the Il-12 to crash in flames. The Ilyushin later turned out to be a Soviet airliner traveling through North Korean airspace to Vladivostok. The Ilyushin crashed on Chinese soil.
