Cause of Death:
Killed in action, in North American F-51 Mustang #337. Lt A.G. Frisby was leading a flight of four Mustangs on an armed reconnaissance just north of Hanpo-ri. The flight had reached a position roughly four miles north-west of Sibyon-ni, when Lt Frisby reported that he had been hit by anti-aircraft fire and was baling out at an altitude of 1000 feet. His aircraft's canopy was seen to fly off and a brown object, probably the pilot, was seen to fall from the crippled aircraft. No parachute was seen though, and it would appear that Lt Frisby's parachute failed to open. His pilotless aircraft, turning to the left, continued to lose height until it struck flat ground near a river and was destroyed. An intensive search by two members of the flight failed to find him, and a search conducted by four aircraft later that day also failed to find any sign of him.
