Illustrations
1. Tran Khang, the CO of 921st Fighter Regiment, (left on the photo) instructs his young pilots before a mission. All pilots are dressed in the high altitude compensating suits and GS-4 helmets. The suits are green. On the background there is a MiG-21PF tactical number "4320" from the 921st Fighter Regiment "Sao Do"
2. This picture was taken in May 1968 at Nombai airfield. In this MiG-21PF fighter (tactical number "4326"), the Vietnamese ace Nguen Van Kok shot down a F-4B fighter-bomber (BuNo 151485) from VF-92. This was Kok's seventh victory and overall, he shot down nine American aircraft. In the middle of 1968, this picture became available to and was published in the world's press. The thirteen stars, denoting victories, on the front part of this aircraft made Western journalists to create an image of a mythical "Colonel Tomb". In fact, this fighter was used by various pilots and the thirteen victories are the "kills" achieved by them using this aircraft, and not by some particular pilot. Note the disruptive pattern of the MiG-21PFM interceptor in the background
3. Captain Fam Thang Ngang (in the center) demonstrates with his hands the evolutions while air fight to Nguen Dak Soat (left) and Nguen Van Kok (right). A typical propaganda shot: three of the Vietnamese aces were pictured on the runway of the Nowbai air base in the end of 1969
4. MiG-21PFM without a tactical number is painted gray, on the background there is a MiG-21 with tactical number "5137". Note now striking the difference is between the gray colored and all bare metal fighters. Both of these aircraft were used for night flight training in the program of preparation to the interceptions of B-52 strategic bombers.
5. Pilots of the 927th Fighter Regiment had just returned from a patrol mission over Hanoi. They wore protective helmets over the leather helmets of ShZ-60 type. 6. MiG-21 fighters of the 927th Fighter Regiment. Noibai Air Base, summer 1972. There are MiG-21 PFMs, MiG-21MFs and two-seaters MiG-21UM in one line. Note the aircraft without a tactical number - it is painted green on all surfaces.
7. Nguen Dac Soat shows the pilots from his squadron how he shot down an American Phanthom on the June 27th, 1972. This was the third kill by Soat in aerial combat.
