Elmer Keith probably creamed his pants when that happened.

Unlikely, but the patriot in me wants to believe it.

Yikes....

In the more than two years he was held prisoner, Owen Baggett's weight dropped from 180 pounds to ninety. He had ample time to think about his midair dual. He did not at first believe it possible that he could have shot down the enemy while swinging in his chute, but gradually pieces of the puzzle came together.

The comments are often more entertaining than the actual story:

I hate to be a killjoy here, but I really doubt the story is true. While in theory it could have happened, the odds are against it. Even slow flying with flaps extended the Zero would have been going over 150mph.

-----------------------------------------------------

This, combined with its light weight, resulted it a very low stalling speed of well below 60 kn (110 km/h; 69 mph). That's less than 37.28 MPH, folks, which is definitely within the realm of possible shots, lucky or not.

I say it's plausible.

Sweet sweet story. I can see that occurring, if that Zero was flying close enough with the canopy open why not? The Zero was a thin skinned fighter as it was and if the canopy was open a few hits center mass on the pilot would do it ! :)

So by your line of thinking NOTHING in history happened before the invention of the camera?:rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:

Back in '97 a B-52 was brought down by a Mini 14 in Guam.

If the 10mm Delta Elite had been around then there wouldn't have been any wreckage left to confirm the kill.

Been done way before ... :whistling:

Follow this link to the final scene where Miami Vice Det. Crockett ventilates a Columbian drug dealer's helicopter with his 10mm Bren Ten, firing Norma 200gn FMJ-FPs @ 1200fps.

Enjoy ... some Swiss Cheese, heh, heh ...

:cool:

The only implausible aspect of that scene was at around 2:20 when Sonny throws away his magazine during the reload. Didn't he know how rare those mags were? :whistling:

Yeah, I noted that and have seen one or two similar mag "discards" by Det Crockett in other S-1 and S-2 episodes.

But here, since all the bad guys were killed anyway, you think maybe he went back to the shoot-out scene afterward and recovered it? :whistling:

'Course, back then they didn't have to make out as many reports either. :shocked:

:cool:

He probably had a case of mags in the hull of his sail boat guarded by Elvis the alligator. ;)
