This is the Cunningham/Driscoll mount when Cunningham got his 5th kill. Fought me all the way and plenty of mistakes but basically looks like a phantom.

Great finish John! It may have fought you a bit, but you won.

Cunningham got his 3rd, 4th, and 5th kills in this bird. He only has two kills to his credit when he launched on that mission.

Unleash hell! Do not repent! Warfare grants us no lament
Let your weapons slash and tear This is no place for fear
Hold the lines! Move as one! In unity our victory's won
Our shields will form a mighty wall

Yes, after the third kill he was on his way back out to sea, and they were shot down. Our side says by a SAM, the Viets say it was a Mig-21.
