F-4e Mig Killers
Digital Art - Acrylic/digital
This image depicts a U.S. Air Force McDonnell Douglas F-4E Phantom II downing a North Vietnamese MiG-21. Piloted by Capt. Dick Coe and RIO Lt. Ken Webb, this 34th TFS - 388 TFW Phantom shot down a MiG over North Vietnam on 5 October 1972. Using one of the then unreliable Sparrow missiles to force the MiG into a closer engagement, Dick Coe's shot managed to hit the MiG while the Phantom pulled heavy Gs to avoid another brace of MiGs. They made it home, but were unsure of the kill until it was confirmed the following day.
