African Aviation Series No. 8
2 SQUADRON IN KOREA Flying Cheetahs – 1950-1953
Winston Brent
ISBN 0958388091

This book was published in 2001 to commemorate South Africa’s entrance into the Korean War in south east Asia 50 years ago. South Africa was requested by the United Nations to send a squadron of the South African Air Force, and we obliged by sending 2 Squadron, which was equipped with North America Mustangs in Korea. During the closing stages of the war, this same squadron converted on to the Sabre. The author has prepared brief articles on each member killed in service, each aircraft lost and those who were unfortunate to become prisoners of war, and had to withstand the horrible and hostile conditions in North Korea. It is A4 with 160 pages and 11 pages of colour photographs and side drawings of the Mustang and Sabres flown. It was published in Hard and Soft cover.
