Capt. McConnell's Hero Ensemble

General Information[]

Capt. McConnell's Hero Ensemble is one of The Legendary War Artifacts, that can be stored and displayed at Museum.

Historical Description[]

No other conflict featured nearly as much jet fighter combat as the Korean War. The American ace of aces in Korea was Captain Joseph McConnell of the 51st Fighter-Interceptor Wings, whose flying horse patch is seen here. In his most dramatic battle, the Soviet ace Semyon Fedorets crippled McConnell's F-86 Sabre, but the American executed a barrel roll and shot down his opponent. Both survived, and since each one downed the other's fighter, both technically gained a victory from the encounter.

McConnell's equipment included this P-1A hard flight helmet with and oxygen mask and goggles. In 1953, he was awarded a Distinguished Service Cross, the U.S. military's second-highest honor, for his extraordinary heroism. McConnell was tragically killed the following year due to a malfunction while testing out a new version of the Sabre in California. His record of 16 aerial victories remains the highest of any U.S. jet pilot.
