"Showtime 100"
by Philip E West
F-4 Phantom

Lieutenant Randy Cunningham with his back-seater Willie Driscoll,
score the second of three air victories achieved during a single mission,
making them the only US Navy Aces of the Vietnam War.

Flying their Phantom F-4J in a strike against the Haiphong rail yards on May 10, 1972,
Lt Randy Cunningham and his RIO Willie Driscoll were attacked by a pair of MiG-17s as they left the target.
Within seconds Cunningham dispatched one with a Sidewinder, and went looking for more.
With the F-4s outnumbered by MiG-17s and 21s, it was only moments before two more MiGs
fell to Cunningham's missiles, chalking up three victories on the mission.
With two previous kills to their credit, when Cunningham and Driscoll made it back
to the USS Constellation they had become the first Aces of the Vietnam War,
and the US Navy's only Aces of the conflict.
Philip's painting captures the second, of Cunningham's victories that day.
