Bail-Outs for 1950

1951 >>>>

Notes:
During 1950 the USAF had a total of 19 emergency ejection and 253 bailouts [compared to 1959 when there were 294 emergency ejections and 23 bailouts] I believe that I have correctly identified 11 of the 19 but can anyone please help confirm the details or amend any
