TUESDAY, APRIL 4, 1950 Nationalists Claim Russian Pilots Downed Planes- Russians Said Flying in China •w C-n »n r ar MAAAA ' . ' —. ' .'-...•.. BI/TTHEVTLHI (ABK.) COURIER KEW« »y Sp*ne*r M TAIPEI, Formosa, April 4. ^i— An >alr headquarters spokesman today said Russian-built planes which downed two Chinese Nationalist fighters undoubtedly were operated by Russians. ..•••.. The spokesman said the planes "definitely were of Russian manufacture." And, he added: Judging from their technique, "they'most E lnly were manned hy Russians." e Nationalist fighters were shot i Sunday during a raid on Red shipping In Hangchow Bay south of Shanghai. That opposition, the first the Nationalists have,encountered In the air In four years of Civil .War. was seen by many today as an ominous forerunner of .Communist air attacks on Formosa. Reds May H»ie Air Cover It also led to belief the Reels will have air cover If they attempt an invasion of this Nationalist Island. "Two Chinese Air Force Mustangs were surprise attacked by four to five Russian planes on the morning of April 2." : The Nationalist fighters, It, said. were making low-level strafing runs on Communist Junks concentrated near Chapu on Hangchow Biy for an amphibious assault on the Chu- san Islands. This island Kroi'p, about 100 miles southeast of Shanghai. Is used by the Nationalists for air ind naval bases. Tile communique said one of the Nationalist pilots balled out and returned safely to base. Taipei newspapers splashed the -imrmmlque. One carried the headline: "RUSSIAN PLANES OPENLY ATTACK OURS." The communique added: "According to an accurate intelligence report from the mainland, a large number of Russian planes hud arrived at Hsuchow (Suchow). 160 miles north of Nanking. , g» Reportedly Frnm Dalren WThe planes were reported „, have come from the air base at Dalren, South Manchurian port." (The Russians have controlled Dalren since the end of World War II. The Soviet Union and Communist China signed an agreement at f.foscow Feb. 14 providing that all properties controlled or leased by the Soviets at Darlen would be turned over to the Chinese this year.) "At Hsuchow their Russian Insignia was repainted Into Chinese Red insignia with red and whir? strlnrs on the tall fins," the communique continued. "They are participating In combat, flights disguised «s Chinese .Communist airplanes. -"Aside from the main base at •Hsuchow.
