    Elmer Keith probably creamed his pants when that happened.

    Unlikely, but the patriot in me wants to believe it.

    The comments are often more entertaining than the actual story:

    I hate to be a killjoy here, but I really doubt the story is true. While in theory it could have happened, the odds are against it. Even slow flying with flaps extended the Zero would have been going over 150mph.

    -----------------------------------------------------

    This, combined with its light weight, resulted it a very low stalling speed of well below 60 kn (110 km/h; 69 mph). That's less than 37.28 MPH, folks, which is definitely within the realm of possible shots, lucky or not.

    Sweet sweet story. I can see that occurring, if that Zero was flying close enough with the canopy open why not? The Zero was a thin skinned fighter as it was and if the canopy was open a few hits center mass on the pilot would do it ! :)

    Back in '97 a B-52 was brought down by a Mini 14 in Guam.

    If the 10mm Delta Elite had been around then there wouldn't have been any wreckage left to confirm the kill.
