 Raid on Hanoi
Raid on Hanoi: A pair of F4B Phantom II`s of Vf-92 escort a raid of A4 Skyhawks from USS Constellation`s VA-55 in a raid over North Vietnam. The USS Constellation conducted 7 separate deployments in South-East Asia from 5 May `64 to 11 October `73.

Constellation`s Fighter Air Wings scored a total of 15 aerial victories during her cruises, but suffered 78 losses (from both operational and combat causes) during the same period. Most of these losses were incurred from the heavy anti-aircraft fire encountered over North Vietnam with only 3 aircraft lost to MiG`s. Operational losses were due to accidents and aircraft malfunctions during the intense flight operations of combat deployment... the total losses include aircraft and helicopters from all units serving aboard ship.
