Photo of a U.S. Navy McDonnell Douglas F-4J Phantom II. This aircraft was assigned to fighter squadron VF-96 Fighting Falcons, Carrier Air Wing 9 (CVW-9), aboard the aircraft carrier USS Constellation (CVA-64) in February 1972. Having the callsign "Showtime 100" it was used by Lt. Randy Cunningham and Lt.JG Willie Dricoll for their 3rd, 4th, and 5th MiG-kills on 10 May 1972. However, it was hit by a North Vietnamese SA-2 surface-to-air-missile and the crew had to eject over the Gulf of Tonkin.

Lt. Randy Cunningham and Lt. J.G. Willy Driscoll flew this F-4J, call sign “Showtime 100,” on May 10, when they “made ace” and were shot down. (U.S. Navy)
