  • Description

    A SQUADRON OF AMERICAN PHANTOM JET FIGHTER-BOMBERS WERE DELIVERED YESTERDAY (29 AUG) TO THE SOUTH KOREAN AIR FORCE AT TAEGU AIR BASE. THE AIRCRAFT WERE CAMOUFLAGED AND READY FOR INSTANT ACTION.

    A SHORT CEREMONY MARKED THE OFFICIAL ACCEPTANCE OF THE AIRCRAFT BY THE SOUTH KOREAN AIR FORCE. THE JET FIGHTERS ARRIVE IN SOUTH KOREA AT A TIME OF INCREASING TENSION BETWEEN NORTH AND SOUTH. THERE HAS BEEN A GROWING NUMBER OF BORDER INCIDENTS AND THE UNITED STATES IS CURRENTLY NEGOTIATING THE RELEASE OF THE THREE-MAN CREW OF ONE OF THEIR HELICOPTERS SHOT DOWN IN NORTH KOREA ON AUGUST 17.

    THE DELIVERY OF THE PHANTOMS -- ONE OF AMERICA'S BEST FIGHTER AIRCRAFT AND WIDELY USED IN VIETNAM -- WILL GREATLY INCREASE THE FIGHTING CAPACITY OF THE SOUTH KOREAN AIR FORCE.
