Mig Alley-Korean War

 Now a new website for this blog.


I was just watching a very interesting program on PBS Nova about Mig Alley and they mentioned something very controversial. The Mig-15s that were used by North Korea (supplied by the Soviet Union) were powered by a Rolls Royce engine. And the plans for building these jet engines were not obtained by a spy or stolen in any way. They were sold by Rolls Royce to the Soviet Union with the permission of the British Government. The American and British pilots fighting the North Koreans did not know of this.
Talk about getting stabbed in the back by a friend. This is unbelievable but true.
