I read a book about him and Robin Olds many years ago.Yup...
Duke Cunningham and his RIO Willie Driscoll splashed three MIGs in a single sortie to become the first American Aces of the Vietnam war. On the way back to the boat they were hit by a SAM but managed to stick with the jet until they were over water, where rescue would be possible. They ejected, (Driscoll first, as in the pic) and were picked up by a Navy helicopter.
Even more off topic, but a great true yarn of American Fighter Pilot loreI read a book about him and Robin Olds many years ago.
