Yep...42 years ago in an L-19...after eight passes, I was winchester for 2.75" willie petes...that left the smoke grenades hanging from safety wire across the back of the seat...two add'l passes, marking with them and the ba$$$tard$ were getting entirely too close with their 'cone fire' tactics...fortunately the fight was pretty much in our favor by that time and I RTB'd with bingo plus 15 minutes FOB...Rod
