Evacuation operations got under way in Sŏul early on the morning of 26 June, and, to the dismay of the F-82 pilots, who orbited in relays above Inch'ŏn harbor, lasted all day. In a change of plans the F-82's were allowed to come inland to cover truck convoys moving from Sŏul to the Army Support Command compound near Inch'ŏn, but for the most part the flights of four F-82's remained over Inch'ŏn harbor.
