Wasn't it in the early 80s when the F-14 shot down an Iranian jet or something?

I think it was Desert Storm. Seems like I recall seeing an interview with a female Apache pilot talking about shooting down an Iraqi helicopter.


I think I'll add fixed wing to the title, but thanks!

"not a single pilot was killed"

It looks like 4 May, after Rico's kill.



on 4 May finally Lt.Col. Milenko Pavlovic scrambled on MiG-29 to
intercept a NATO strike in the area of Valjevo, his home-town, which the
previous night was first hit by an earthquake and then by a heavy
NATO-strike. Appearing too late on the scene and experiencing one
malfunction of the weapons and navigation systems on his aircraft after
the other, Lt.Col. Pavlovic was eventually intercepted by two USAF
F-16Cs. Both US fighters were flying on the end of the NATO-formation,
and had to be turned around by the E-3 Sentry AWACS aircraft in order to
engage – while simultaneously also attacked by the Serbian air defence
units. Lt.Col. Pavlovic was shot down within a short period of time, and
killed. Even if the Serbs subsequently found fragments of a Strela-2M
MANPAD in the wreckage of his MiG, this kill was officially credited to a
USAF pilot from the 78th FS.

That one really pissed me off at the time and still does.  A lot of good people died because of a few fighter pilots with itchy trigger fingers.   There was absolutely no excuse for it.  It isn't difficult to visually identify a Blackhawk, while flying in an F-15.                          They were never held accountable.      





The GAO report added that the failure of Wickson and May to report
their contact to Martin was indicative of a well-known, general lack of
discipline among F-15 aircrews involved in OPC and this was not
discussed in the USAF report.
[url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1994_Black_Hawk_shootdown_incident#cite_note-64][65][/url]

The GAO investigation also uncovered evidence that a rivalry between
F-15 and F-16 pilots may have contributed to Wickson's and May's
"urgency to engage hostile aircraft" but was not discussed in the USAF
investigation.[url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1994_Black_Hawk_shootdown_incident#cite_note-65][66][/url]
During the GAO's investigation, USAF OPC officers confirmed that the
rivalry between the F-15 and F-16 communities was particularly
pronounced and intense partly due to the fact that F-16 aircraft had
scored all of the air-to-air combat kills in Iraq and Bosnia
since the end of the Gulf War. Pilkington stated to the GAO that, "the
shootdown pilots' haste was due in part to the planned entry of two
F-16s into the TAOR 10 to 15 minutes after the F-15s and that if the
F-15 pilots had involved the chain of command, the pace would have
slowed down, ruining the pilots' chances for a shootdown." The GAO
concluded that if the evidence of a lack of mission discipline by
Wickson and May had been included in the USAF report, such information
"could have been useful in subsequent administrative and disciplinary
actions."[url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1994_Black_Hawk_shootdown_incident#cite_note-66][67][/url]
