Decommissioned from Korean navy aviation and preserved at the war memorial, this Alouette III is said to have marked a greatest achievement in Korean military history. On August 13, 1983, it engaged against and destroyed a North Korean infiltration vessel disguised as a Japanese fishing boat which emerged near Uleung island in East Sea. It was an actual engagement and its record is unprecedented in total through Korean armed forces aviation. Therefore, it has a red "kill mark" on the fuselage.
