Captain Robert Pardo 10. March 1967

At that day Capt. Pardo used his F-4 to push a fellow American's badly damaged jet from North Vietnam into friendly territory.

My questions: Unit of both Airmen and how he did this??????

Hello Hans,

I don't have all my references about air war over Vietnam close at hand, but you should do a search with "Pardo's push", as this specific maneuver is known since.

And for once, you can also check wikipedia

Hans,

F-4Ds 63-7653 and 64-0839 were lost in the process, but all four crew were rescued.
Unit concerned was 8th TFW, 433rd TFS.

Regards,

Hans,

Small correction in my previous post, but same outcome: a/c were F-4C types and not F-4D.

Regards,

Leendert
