Royal Thai Air Force
Bronco OV-10C Bronco    411sqn shot down by Laotian ground fire during a
reconaissance mission near Laos border
     
Pilot ejected safely and was captured Co-Pilot ejected safely and was captured.  
Notes: February saw the Royal Thai Air Force (RTAF) suffer its first casualties in fighting along
disputed border areas with neighbouring Laos. Both countries lay claim to a 30 square mile area
close to the Laotian capital of Vientiane some 250 miles north of Bangkok. During the short,
sharp battle in the remote mountainous region, rich in timber, a RTAF F-5E Tiger II was brought
down by a shoulder-fired Laotian SAM-7 on February 3rd. The pilot was killed.

This appears to contradict the report that the pilot ejected safely - or were two F-5s brought down??
