Wow - a really historically significant photo, never thought I'd see a pic of this jet.
155811 has the dubious distinction of being the ONLY Marine jet shot down by MiGs during the Vietnam war... it was downed by NVAF MiG-21 ace Nguyen Duc Soat with an Atoll AAM on Aug 26 1972. Crew of pilot 1LT Sam Cordova KIA, RIO 1LT D L Borders rescued.
