Hawker Sea Fury's of 802 Naval Squadron flying from HMS Ocean, engage MiG-15s over Pyongyang during the Korean War, 9th August 1952.
Lead by Peter 'Hoagy' Carmichael, four Royal Navy Sea Fury's encountered eight enemy MiG-15s and the intense dogfight resulted in the destruction of one MiG with at least two more damaged.
It's believed to be the first recorded victory of a piston-engined aircraft over a jet fighter in the Korean War.
