Salient. Victoria University of Wellington Students' Newspaper. Volume 31, Number 23. September 17, 1968



"For those three F-111s that have been lost over Vietnam at a cost of say $16,000,000 I could have bought 1200 Cessna 150s" writes a correspondant of Flight International.

"One of these Cessnas would carry one pilot (no special training needed), a 250 lb bomb (just shove it out the door), it would fly 200 fniles into Viet Cong territory (I bet it could fly 150 feet lower than the best terrain-thumping radar in the F-111) and I would probably hit something—and might even get home."
