The damaged nose picture is after we took a round in the engine and temporarily lost power and went into the trees. Lucky for us my pilot regained enough power to pull out and we ended up with this nose damage.

Here is a 170th Buccaneer gunship #66-00623 we rescued that will be restored. Was literally scheduled to be turned into aluminum scrap. Took 6 rounds in 1969 with 1 WIA, rounds entered cockpit. Flew with 3 AHC to include Buccaneers, Taipans, and Bushmasters
