FEAF Bomber Command raided enemy marshaling yards, airfields, and supply centers, dropping more than 6,700 tons of bombs in more than 720 sorties. Superfortress crews occasionally struck bridges with radio-guided bombs, but they largely avoided northwestern Korea where they might have encountered scores of MiG-15s.

MiGs appeared in numbers exceeding a hundred, consistently outnumbering their F-86 counterparts, and downed three at a cost of five of their own lost to Sabres. October 22: Two SA-16s, 3d ARS, rescued the twelve-man crew of a downed B-29, the highest number of individuals rescued by an SA-16 on any day in the war. October 23: In one of the bloodiest air battles of the war, during a 307th BW raid on Namsi Airfield, MiG-15s destroyed three B-29s and one F-84, and damaged five other bombers.
