All four pilots are seen wearing dark blue coats with a dark brown fur collar, as well as the winter-version of the SL-60 black leather helmet, and associated goggles. Note the red identification patch, marked with a yellow star and yellow 215, on Le Hai's coat (VPAF Museum) 45 On 25 April 1967, VA-76's Lt Charles D Stackhouse was shot down over Hai Phong by Nguyen Van Bay's flight whilst flying A-4C BuNo 147799.

By increasing the angle of bank, he slowly started to dive. The pilot had not pushed the control column forward, however, which meant that he could carry on constantly changing the direction of the aircraft in different planes. This manoeuvre was similar to a spiral in its early stage, although in this instance the pilot was performing a slow descending roll. The simultaneous movement of the aircraft both in vertical and horizontal planes was usually enough to free the MiG from missile lock.
