Well in keeping with the Phantom theme I have been on this last few days, here is another one. This one is the US Marine Corps only Mig killer of Vietnam. VMFA-333 Shamrock 201. After shooting down one Mig 21 and damaging a second, they headed for the boat but 201 was damaged by a SAM and due to fuel issues both crews (wingman as well) had to puch out into the Gulf. They were rescued by plane guards and returned to the ship.
