Rifle Shot

  • Ed Smith
  • Interview by: Ewan Burnett


During my Phantom Tour at Germany, in Germany,

I was shot at by

someone with possibly a grudge against the noisy

aircraft overhead, they found when we landed

back in our base, the ground crew found a hole

in the tailplane of the aircraft and it matched

the size of a hunting rifle round.

They decided that someone shot at us

probably on the approach to land,

we'd been in a high altitude training

so it wasn't then,

so it must've been on the approach to land,

they never found the culprit.

But they made a mess of the tailplane trying to discover

which size bullet fit in the same type hole.
