On 10 May 1972, Lieutenant Randy "Duke" Cunningham and Lieutenant (junior grade) William P. Driscoll from VF-96 "Fighting Falcons" flying an F-4J, call sign "Showtime 100", shot down three MiG-17s to become the first American flying aces of the war. Their fifth victory was believed at the time to be over a mysterious North Vietnamese ace, Colonel Nguyen Toon, now considered mythical. On the return flight, the Phantom was damaged by an enemy surface-to-air missile. To avoid being captured, Cunningham and Driscoll flew their burning aircraft using only the rudder and afterburner (the damage to the aircraft rendered conventional control nearly impossible), until they could eject over water.

Quoting Luke V This looks big... but how big? Can you post a picture of a mini-fig next to it? Great job!!! Looks awesome!
Last I counted it was 122 studs long, so roughly 1/20th scale I believe (if my math is correct). I have pics with minifigs next to my Phantoms in my gallery, "Cat Shot" in particular.

Fantastic tribute to one of the greatest pilots of all time (who was, unfortunately, also one of the most corrupt politicians of all time).
