On November 5th, 1962, two RF-8 Crusaders
flew another low level reconnaissance mission over the
island of Cuba during the Cuban Missile Crisis. During this
mission, Lt. Cdr. Tad Riley from VFP-62, and Capt. Fred
Carolan from VMCJ-2, were jumped by a pair of Russian MiG-21
fighters. Although one of the MiGs disengaged, the other
continued to chase the Crusaders. The unarmed Crusaders the
"hit the deck" and went to afterburner, reaching speeds of
mach 1.2, and at times, were below 50 feet of altitude over
the sugarcane fields of Cuba.
