F104 vs J-6 over Vietnam

Recommended Posts

An account of a combat between a F104 and a Chinese J-6 over Viet Nam


The story is nice to read, but this part is very interesting:


 Smith declared an emergency and hoped that Da Nang’s ‘alert pad’ F-102A Delta Daggers with their long-ranging radars might be launched to find him in time. 

F102 to be used as "mini awacs" (or rather Air Traffic control) !
