On July 5, 1972 in action against theU.S. Operation Linebacker MiG-21PFM 5020 flown by Nguyen Tien Sam and accompanied by his wingman Ha Vinh Thanh, encountered two F-4Es. Nguyen Tien Sam got so close that when his missile hit F-4E 67-0296 he had to fly through the debris temporarily stalling his engine. His wingman downed F-4E 67-0339. 5020 is in Hanoi wearing 12 kill markings.

Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-21PFM Fishbed

Designed as a successor to the Soviet Union's family of early MiG jet fighters, the MiG-21 was first flown on February 14, 1955. This supersonic jet fighter was the first Soviet aircraft to successfully combine fighter and interceptor characteristics. Its delta wing design gave it the ability to climb quickly and its light loading further improved its performance, making it possible for a skilled pilot to successfully engage in dogfights with contemporary enemy fighters. Today, more than 50 years after its introduction, the MiG-21 still serves the air forces of many nations and has become the most-produced supersonic jet in history.
