"The battle is often decided in the first attack. It did not really matter, successful he was or not: after the first attack our MiG-15 immediately gained altitude, and" Sabre "rushed to the ground. Each of us is trying to reach a height where he had the advantage, and so the battle began almost immediately faded ".
Our pilots used evasive action - a forward loop, very difficult maneuver for any pursuer - did not allow him to take a firing position. Kramarenko he once was sandwiched between three "Sabre":
"I did ten or twelve oblique loop. Ammunition zero. All have dark eyes. But to constantly monitor the situation, trying to break away from Americans and head towards the base." Barrel ". Dive. Flew to the side of the bridge, protected by anti-aircraft guns."
