|I saw this quote today on the front page.
Willie, how long can you tread water?
-- CDR Randy Duke Cunningham, after his and Willie's F-4 took a missile hit over NVN and he dashed for the coast.
I was told by a certain F-105 pilot once that in Vietnam pilots were instructed to fly for sea if they were low on fuel or took damage because "the enemy controlled the ground, but we controlled the sea" and in that case they could send rescue for them quicker. So this quote kind of intriqued me.... Gums... Snake-1.... a few others out there, cough cough!
