The date was July 15, 1953, mid-morning over Sakchu, Korea. Captain Clyde Curtin, 4th Fighter
Group, 335th Fighter Squadron, has just checked his six and has spotted a lone Russian MiG-15 diving
in to attack from the side. Curtin is part of a 4 ship flight of F-86s in a line-abreast formation. The
MiG was at a 3 o'clock high position, and the driver started an attack on Clyde's F-86. Instinctively,
throttle to idle, dive brakes, deployed, Clyde causes the surprised MiG-15 to overshoot, passing just
in front of him. When Curtin jerked the throttle and deployed the speed brakes he turned towards
the path that the MiG was going to take. Without looking through the gun sight, the trigger is pulled
and this "Crazy MiG" is destroyed, all in split seconds with not even enough time to warn his flight!
This is Clyde's 3rd victory. He will finish his tour in Korea with 5 kills and Ace status.
