North Korea's invasion of South Korea in 1950 was the start of a three-year-long war that saw the North, backed by Russia and China, battling American and United Nations forces in the skies over the 38th Parallel.  This is the story of those brave airmen, told through a series of remarkable interviews and historical analysis
 
Features include: 
 
Helicopter Angels 
The Korean War saw useable helicopters enter the battlefield for the first time 
 
The Superfortress Arrives 
When it came to heavy bombing against North Korean targets, the World War Two-era B-29 was the best the USAF could muster 
 
Corsairs and Night Fighting Tigercats 
The US Marine Corps’ carrier-borne fleet of fighter and attack aircraft joined the fray in August 1950 and were immediately put into action 
 
Meteor Bail Out 
After being shot down by a MiG-15, RAAF Gloster Meteor pilot Warrant Officer Ron Guthrie’s war would be long and painful. He tells his arduous story  
 
The Bridges at Toko-Ri 
The famous film The Bridges at Toko-Ri was based on an actual raid conducted by US Navy aircraft during the Korean War.   Capt Paul N Gray, who planned and led it in December 1951, tells the real story 
 
Ocean & Glory 
The Fleet Air Arm’s Hawker Sea Fury and Fairey Firefly fleets saw extensive service in Korea.  They achieved notable successes and suffered tragic losses alike 
 
Brits over MiG Alley 
Towards the end of the war a small cadre of RAF pilots began flying Sabres with the USAF - this is their story 
 
Counting the Cost 
The Korean War turned out to be much longer and far bloodier than anyone anticipated.  In addition to those lost or injured, large numbers of POWs ‘disappeared’, presumed to have been shipped to the USSR.  We investigate the story of those who didn't come home
