On December 4, 1950 Ensign Jesse L. Brown, the first black to complete the Navy's basic flight training, along with 5 other aircraft left the carrier USS Leyte to support UN troops trapped at Chosin Reservoir. When they arrived on scene the enemy had left but Ensign Brown’s aircraft was leaking fuel, probably caused by small arms fire from the ground. Brown jettisoned external fuel tanks and rockets and attempted a landing in the snow. Unfortunately the landing became a crash and Brown was trapped in his aircraft where he eventually died.Opening canopy
