On 26 July 1954, two Douglas Skyraiders from the aircraft carriers USS Philippine Sea and Hornet successfully shot down two PLAAF La-7s off the coast of Hainan Island while searching for survivors after the shooting down of a Cathay Pacific Skymaster airliner 3 days previously, also by La-7s.

The above is mentioned in the Skyraider page, but not here... With the long list on military aircraft mentioned in the SAR mission, surely this should also be mentioned?--JRdinosaurJR (talk) 07:01, 10 June 2011 (UTC)

La-7's, or La-9's?

The La-7 page here on wiki says those a/c were only operated by the USSR and Czechs. The La-9 page says 150 of those were exported to China in 1950 - is thsi a case of mistaken identity of similar a/c?--Aloysius the Gaul (talk) 04:15, 27 September 2012 (UTC)

La-11, La-9?[edit]

On 26 July 1954, during the survivor search operation, two Douglas Skyraiders from the aircraft carriers USS Philippine Sea and Hornet shot down two Chinese People's Liberation Army Air Force La-9s off the coast of Hainan Island. It is not known whether they were the same La-9s that shot down VR-HEU.

This is wrong from several angles. One, the source speaks of La-7, not La-9. Second, the rest of the article identifies the attackers as La-11. They can't possibly be all three at once. -- DevSolar (talk) 13:43, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
