VPAF MiG-17F #3020


MiG-17F, #3020 Air Force of the Democratic Republic of Viet Nam, 923rd Fighter Regiment Yen The, late 1960ies.

 

this aircraft has become one of the most famous "green snakes" of the Vietnamese air force since it's public

display in the late 1960ies. it sports 8 kill marks, amassed by different pilots. #3020 was allegedly

flown by six-kill ace Le Hai when he shot down a F-4, 14. june 1968.

 

popular narratives connect this aircraft with a dog fight between US-Navy aces Cunningham / Driscoll and

the elusive "Col. Tomb" on 10.mai 1972. as of today there is no sign that this Vietnamese "super ace" ever

existed outside U.S.-circles, and there is no reason to believe that this aircraft was involved in this fight.

however, #3020 does not seem to have survived the war, since it is not displayed in Viet Nam which almost

certainly would have been the case if it still existed.
