Exhibit: Fighters Anthology (1998)
Vietnam Campaign Guide
Vietnam Mission 13
Goin' Downtown - Escort
DATE: June 21th, 1972
MiGMan's Combat Diary
Aircraft: rec. F-8J, I suggest the F-4J Phantom II
Load Ordnance: As usual, lose the two external fuel pods and adjust internal fuel to 79%.
Notes: This is a good dogfight mission.... a "target rich environment&, you might say. Despite a Mission successful message, when I landed I was told "Mission Failure"... there's just no pleasing some people. One more black smudge on my record!
