Ch'o-ngjin [Seishin] Airport

During the Korean War B-29s bombed the vicinity of of this airfield on 20 August 1950. The US Navy followed up attacks with the shells of 16 inch guns from the USS Missouri on 12 Oct 1950. On 25 Nov 1950, the Calvary unit of the 1st ROK Regiment seized the airfield. This had also been the target of a fateful flight during which four F-80s were supposed to make a sweep of this airfield on 8 Oct 1950. As it turned out, the pilots lost their way and crossed the Soviet border and instead attacked a Soviet airfield in the vicinity of Sukhaya Rechka.
