17/01: Magill. Capt Charles (Chuck) J. "SLY" Magill was a Marine exchange pilot serving with the 58th TFS.

17/01: Fox. This continues to be listed as an AIM-7 kill in official records, but what actually occurred was that the pilot had accidentally had his arming switches set to HEAT when he initially pulled the trigger. This launched an AIM-9M, which does not have the characteristic smoke trail of the "Great White Wonder" Sparrow. When he did not see the smoke trail, the pilot checked his switches, reset them (assuming a weapons fault), and proceeded to fire an AIM-7. The AIM-9 got there first, however, and destroyed the MiG-21 before the Sparrow could get there.

17/01 : Fox Weapon configuration was 2 x AIM9, 2 x AIM-7, 1 x fuel tank and 4 x Mk.84 for bombing mission. After scramble from AWACS, pilot switched his radar from A2G to A2A mode and shot down Chengdu F-7A (license built MiG-21F-13), check one row above for details.

17/01 : Mongillo Weapon configuration was 2 x AIM9, 2 x AIM-7, 1 x AN/ALQ-167(V)-70, 1 x fuel tank and 3 x Mk.84 for bombing mission. After scramble from AWACS, pilot switched his radar from A2G to A2A mode and shot down Chengdu F-7A (license built MiG-21F-13).

19/01: Rodriguez. After Underhill shot down the first MiG-29, both Rodriguez and Underhill had the remaining MiG-29 bracketed. In an attempt to dive into an escape window that had already closed, the Iraqi MiG-29 pilot attempted to execute a split-S from a starting altitude of about 2,000 feet. Rodriguez, who was the engaged low man, recognized the problem and took it upstairs; the MiG-29 attempted to follow through with the split-S and hit the desert floor.

The Underhill-Rodriguez engagement occurred as CHEVRON was clearing the six of CITGO flight, which had just killed its pair of MiG-25s and was retreating south to the tanker track. It is said to have been the only turning fight of the war. In post-war interviews, Rodriguez expressed his opinion that they had been extremely lucky in the intercept, since AWACS did not call the pair of MiG-29s approaching from the left beam until they were roughly 13 miles away. Prior to that call, CHEVRON had been unaware of the MiGs' presence.

26/01: Draeger-Shiavi-Rodriguez. This triplet of kills was a "textbook" BVR offensive sweep, with the four CITGO F-15Cs (the fourth was flown by Bruce Till) picking up four MiG-23s and bouncing three (one of them returned to H-2 early in the intercept, presumably because of mechanical problems). The targets were sorted and shot at by all four F-15s at over 13 miles (Till's AIM-7 arrived slightly after the others and thus he did not receive a kill credit).

29/01: Watrous. Capt Watrous was a 32nd TFG pilot detached to the 525th TFS/36th TFW during the war.

07/02: Parsons. Col Rick Parsons was the commander of the 33rd TFW, flying a 58th TFS aircraft on this date.

11/02: Dingee-McKenzie. This was a shared kill.

14/02: Bennett-Bakke. This was the famous laser-guided-bomb kill. The helicopter was on the ground at the time that PACKARD 41 released the GBU-10, but took off while the bomb was in flight. The WSO kept lasing the helicopter anyway, and the bomb guided straight through the rotor disc, destroying the Hughes 500 instantly. The kill was witnessed by a Special Forces team on the ground.

22/03: Hehemann. The PC-9 pilot ejected immediately after observing the immediately preceding Su-22 kill by ZEREX 21.
