Winter Seminar Series at Historic Flight: “The Korean Air War” Naval Air Operations

Wednesday, January 8, 2020

Presented by Barry Latter, retired Boeing chief engineer of 34 years, aviation historian and historical archivist. Amid the political arguments and chaos of big carriers versus long range strategic bombers, the Navy struggled to find its future direction in the wake of WWII. President Truman’s immediate response to the North Korean invasion south across the 38th parallel, pitchforked the Navy into a situation for which it was ill prepared. We will examine the roles played by the Navy throughout the Korean campaign and see how the Korean war actually helped the service emerge with a much clearer definition of its enduring place in the military forces of the United States.”
