What are the similarities between the Vietnam War and World War I?

The Korean War is similiar to WW1. Both Korea & WW1 were the FIRST air wars (air to air combat/dog-fighting). WW1 with cloth covered bi-planes; Korea with jet aircraft. Both WW1 & Korean War were intense bloody fighting at close range all in one region, sometimes trench type warfare; back and forth battles. Both WW1 & Korean War were ended by an Armistice. Both WW1 & Korean War are overshadowed by WW2 & Vietnam War. The Vietnam War & WW2 are very similiar: Both created new branches of combat arms for the US Army; AIRBORNE Infantry for WW2 & AIRMOBILE Infantry for Vietnam. WW2 and the Vietnam War were highly mobile wars. Aerial combat (air to air combat/dog-fighting) was for WW2: "Refined" from WW1 & Vietnam's aerial combat was "refined" from the Korean War. Both wars ended in complete victory; allies won WW2, communists won the Vietnam War.

What was the impact of airplanes on the Korean war?

As in all wars since 1914 air power is the main controlling factor. It was the UN control of the air, (mainly US), which made it impossible for the Chinese and North Korean armies to have air support. If your enemy has air support and you don't, then you are not going to win.
