There's mention of an Owen Brewer baling out of a Mustang in early October 1950 here...
http://www.koreanwar.org/html/units/.../biteman23.htm

18th Fighter-Bomber Wing in Korea...'Then, on the same day, October 2, 1950, we lost Ramon Davis in the Wonsan area, then another, a Major Murritt Davis ...a new arrival in the Group, went down, and we received word that Alex Padilla had been captured while serving with the Army as a Forward Air Controller in the central sector. Within the next couple of days, Ed Hodges had his controls shot out and Owen Brewer had his engine shot up; both were forced to bail out ...which they did successfully, and both were picked up by our forces and returned to duty.'

According to his daughter, his nickname was 'Herbie' (http://www.koreanwar.org/html/units/usaf/18fbg.htm)
