Push Comes to Shove

March 2019




On 10 March 1967, USAF Captains Bob Pardo and Earl Aman were on a mission over the Hanoi area of North Vietnam. Captain Aman's F-4 Phantom II was hit by anti-aircraft fire and lost so much fuel that it could not return home. Pardo had Aman lower his tailhook and carefully maneuvered his F-4 so that the tailhook was against the base of his F-4's windscreen. He then pushed the wounded "Rhino" back to friendly territory where both crews safely ejected from their damaged aircraft. Honest!




Note: Each month a different image from the current calendar year is featured here. To avoid the gnawing 12-month period of suspense to see all 12 pieces (along with lots of aviation anniversaries (When did the first pig fly?), incredible trivia (What is Godzilla's "birthday"?), and outrageous quotes from people that should know better) place your order for the Aerocatures™ Calendar now!
