Ejection of a MiG Pilot.

This unusual sequence of photos, taken by gun camera film of a U.S. Air Force F-86 “Sabre” jet fighter-interceptor shows a Communist MiG-15 pilot abandoning his aircraft after it has been hit by the “Sabre’s” gunfire. The MiG-kill went to 2Lt Edwin E. Aldrin Jr, Montclair, NJ, on May 14, 1950 during a 6-day period which saw Air Force “Sabre” pilots destroy 36 Red MiG jets.
