1951: For the third time in six months, Seoul changes hands as Chinese forces move in. The last USAF aircraft evacuates Kimpo airfield in the face of the Chinese onslaught. After the last aircraft departs, American bombers crater the runway making it unusable for the enemy’s aircraft. (Gen. MacArthur’s Lockheed Constellation seen at Kimpo in 1950.)
