While not quite totally accurate, a nice sentiment. I know of at least one F-111 credit of an enemy fighter by out flying him into the groundAfter Desert Storm Mac Air put out a poster which said something to the effect that "Every single enemy fighter downed in DS was downed by an aircraft built by MacAir".
A lot of great planes were built there.
