This story is about a fighter-bomber mission flown by the 18th Fighter-Bomber Wing near the end of the Korean War.  The sorties flown were never authorized by 5th Air Force Headquarters!  In addition, the mission was probably the first large-scale, night fighter-bomber operation conducted in combat.
