Killed in action, in North American F-51 Mustang #391. Lt T.C. Scott was the leader of a flight that were tasked to attack targets east of Kaesong. On arrival in the target area, Lt Scott experienced difficulties with his radio, and handed over the lead to his No.3, Lt Singleton. The mosquito controller warned them of the flak and handed them their target, after which they made their attacks individually, at a safe distance from each other. Lt Austin, flying in the No.4 position behind Lt Scott saw the latter's aircraft burst into flames and shed a few large pieces. The Mustang failed to recover from its dive, crashing into the ground.
