Li Han (Chinese: 李汉, 1924 in Tang County, Hebei) was a MiG-15 pilot of the People's Republic of China. He was a flying ace during the Korean War, with 8 victories.[1]

A member of the 4th Fighter Aviation Division[2][3] He was the first Chinese pilot credited with shooting down a U.S. aircraft.[2]

Although all Chinese aces have received the title Combat Hero in acknowledgement of their services,[4] very little information is known of the Chinese pilots during the war due to the lack of published records.
