W) - +• Communist toldlerg anrt alrme fought for two days in a vain al tempt to keep Allied Naval force from capturing a downed MIO-1 fighter, now providing the Unite.. Slates with B«cret« of the Russian made jets. This was disclosed today In an of flclal account by the Defense DC parlment and Par East Nnva Forces of the capture of the MIC last July by a daring Naval sea air task force which went 100 mile into enemy tcrrllory to get thi plane from shallow water n e a Hamchon on the west coast o Jforth Korea. The Mia, snict the Defense De partment statement, "Is the plane that Is undergoing study at Wright Patterson Air Force Bnsc, Ohio.' It referred to the Soviet Jet ns i "nearly intact MIG-15." The Je engine, of paramount Interest to Allied air Intelligence experts ant aero eiigine designers, ''was covered with mud but Intact," the Department snld. An Air Force spokesman, in nn Independent comment after the Defense Department announcement was issued, said "the MIG-15 parts are still tinder study." The plane has not been reassembled, hft sold but "tor security reasons" the Air Force could not say what will be done with It. The official Defense Department account of the salvage operation, desiirnated ns "Operation MIO Swipe," said that: It was under the general direction of Rear Admiral A. K. Scott- Moncrleff of the British Navy. Pilots from the British carrier Glory located the downed plane nnd photographed its position on July 11. Then a U. 8. Navy helicopter, flying from the British carrier's flight deck, marked the position with buoys. Tile MIG was in shoal water through which only shallow-draft craft could operate through winding channels and heavy ctirrcnt. A U. S. Navy landing ship dry- ttocJc (a jfilf-propeHed drydock) carrying a 120-foot utility landing ship with a crane reached the scene. Personnel In the whole operation Included British snd U. H. Navy and Air arm personnel, Republic of South Korea Navy men, U. S. Army and Air Force experts. Selvage operation started o n July 20. While the mnln part* of the MIG were being fished out nnd brought aboard the salvage craft, a party wn t sent ashore to pick up scattered pieces of wreckage. Enemy mtwhlnegun fire opened up. Marine fliers from the American carrier Sicily made two swings over the shoreline, rocketing and strafing the enemy positions until they drove the Communist* bock Into nearby hills' Tha enemy heavy artillery opened up in an attempt to drive the salvage party away, but "was silenced." the account said. It noted that In addition to continuous cover by carrier planes the operation provided support by Ihe main batteriet of two British warships, the cardigan Bay and Kenya. On the afternoon of July 21, •when the operation was almost completed, the Sicily warned that a flight of 32 MIO's was henrted for the salvage area. Four Marine planes took off from the Sicily and lured the approaching enemy jets away as the salvage fleet slipped off Into the cover of a log bank. The utility landing craft, with the damaged MIO aboard, moved Into the well-deck of the big dry- dock Ehlp, Ihe dock was pumped out and the whole fleet hustled off with the prizs package of intelligence.
