An unknown quantity of Il-28 Beagle light bombers were delivered to North Korea in the early 1950s. Presumably, these were manned and flown by Soviet air crews. Operations during the Korean War are largely unknown, although ten took part in the victory parade over Pyongyang on 28 July 1953. Some 70 Il-28s were delivered from China by sea during the early 1960s. Deliveries continued until 1965/66 when relations between North Korea and China deteriorated. Large numbers reportedly remained in service during the late 1990s. Also see Harbin H-5.
