There were several Russkies who defected to the west during the cold war with enemy aircraft, but where there ever any Americans who went over to the commies with an American plane?

IIRC there were some who ran to North Korea during the Vietnam era. They weren't treated very well.

ETA: They went on foot, not in planes.

If there had been, we likely wouldn't have heard anything about it anyway. I doubt the govt would have stepped forward and released that as public info. Not very good for morale.

But I doubt this happened. Who'd wanna defect to a bunch of damn Commies anyway? I can understand why they (the Commies) would want to leave for a free nation however.
