    Here is a piece I have been working on and at this point it is still in work. but I thought I would share it with you all. this happened on my first Med deployment in 1988,89. the time in history was January 4 1989 in the Gulf of Sidra. Two Tomcats from the FV-32 Fighting Swordsmen engaged two Mig 22 out of Libia. This is a half size image and is not boardered and titled as of yet but Im hoping to send this one to print at some point. I hope you all like and any comments are welcome.

    Salute Wolf

    Wasn't the first one a couple of Tomcats and a couple of Mig 23s in 1981? Then there was another one later, not sure when. Maybe it is the above.

    Thanks Guys! I made a mistake on the Migs, they were Mig23s in 89.
