T-33A serial 51-4413 was forced down by MiG-15s on 23 December 1957. The aircraft was being ferried (one pilot on board) from France to either the Greek or Yugoslav Air Force (Military Assistance Program); the pilot was released.

Thank you gmasher for the information. I'll change the date in the title from 1949 to your date.
