Mirim [P'yongyang East] Airfield

This airfield was evacuated in Dec 1950. It consisted of a sod field with muddy or dusty conditions. Two mustangs were lost on landing caused by dust. Primitive even by communist standards the fields short trip to the front deemed worth its capture. In Sep 1950, 206 members of the South African Air Forces (SAAF) arrived, to help fly and maintain the mustangs of the 18th US Fighter Bomber Wing stationed here.

The SAAF members stayed only for a short time before they were forced to move by the southerly direction of the battle front on to Suwon K-13 on 2 December.
