Through August and September, the North Koreans could only muster at most 16 sorties a day, most by isolated, single aircraft. By June 30, air assets were being rallied against ground targets as well as aircraft. That day the 19th Bombardment Group was being used to bomb targets along the Han River. Meanwhile, the 3rd Bombardment Group bombed targets around Seoul, seeking to slow the North Korean advance southward from the newly captured city.
These assets also attacked North Korean convoys and troop movements along the roads to great effect.
Close Air Support (CAS): Its Korean War Origin - History
During these attacks North Korean aircraft rarely opposed the US aircraft, but in a few occasions Yak-9 flights appeared, and in one instance engaged a flight of Fs from the 36th Fighter-Interceptor Squadron , allowing Lieutenants Charles A. Wurster and John B. Thomas to score a victory each. In spite of 25 bombing missions in Seoul, however, the North Korean troops were continuing their advance, forcing the US forces to abandon Suwon Airfield.
Beginning with the July 5 Battle of Osan , US troops began a continuous and unsuccessful ground campaign against the North Koreans, and many of the US air assets were used in close air support and airstrike roles to aid the faltering ground troops. A massive interdiction campaign ensued which would have implications for the upcoming conflicts. The North Korean ground troops, unprepared for the aggressive use of US air power and untrained in countering it, continued to operate tightly packed convoys on open roads, allowing the US air forces to attack and ravage them repeatedly.
From July 7 to 9, an estimated trucks and 44 T tanks were destroyed between Seoul and Pyongtaek. On a few occasions, the UN airpower made mistakes, such as a July 3 bombing by No.

At the same time, UN aircraft began flying at higher altitudes because combined small arms fire from North Korean ground targets was taking a heavier toll on UN aircraft. The UN would remain unopposed in the skies until the Chinese forces entered the war in November of that year. In spite of the unsuccessful UN ground action from June 25 to August 4, the air battle for South Korea was considered a crucial success for the UN forces. Able to attain air superiority over its outmatched enemy, the UN air force was able to concentrate its efforts on attacking the North Koreans on the ground, and in the process inflicted significant casualties.
This, in conjunction with bombing missions against North Korean armor, supplies and ports, greatly hampered North Korean efforts against the Pusan Perimeter, contributing to the eventual UN victory on the ground. The victory in the air battles also meant a large number of other advantages for the war during August and September; UN troops were able to move by day without fear of air attack, and UN naval ships could operate close to shore.

North Korean troops themselves were confined to night attacks to avoid UN aircraft and much of its limited navy was also destroyed. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Korean War.
