This MiG-15 of the KPAFAC 435th IAD 447th Regiment was one of the four destroyed in straffing by two F-86A from the 4th FIW 334th FIS(Kenneth Chandler and Dayton Ragland).Four other MiGs were damaged. The KPAFAC 447th Regiment was the first North Korean unit equipped with MiG-15 and declared operational Nov 7, 1951. The MiGs(RD-45F engine)were ex 176th GIAP and 196th IAP and delivered to the unit by Oct 6, 1951.Recce photo flights show some 30 MiGs deployed in Uiju by November 1951. Avoiding more losses by straffing or bombs, KPAFAC 447th Regiment MiGs were shortly after transfered to Antung.
