Photos - Aerial Over Korea

Close this window


Some of the most interesting photographs of Korea were taken from the air during the war years. This page of the Korean War Educator opened in August of 2001 with photographs submitted by Bartley Greenwood of Pensacola, Florida. Bartley was a member of UNCREG (see United Nations Involvement on this website) in 1953.
