You should add a big red star, with a "21" in the center, to the F-4 66-7468 you have displayed on a pedastal in Springfield. I was piloting this plane December 28, 1972 when I and my RIO John Dubler shot down a MIG-21 about 50 miles west of Hanoi using an AIM7E-2. This was the seventeenth kill of 1972 for the 555 TFS "Triple NIckle" squadron and the 39th squadron klll of the Viet Nam war.

I am looking for any information on the : Aero Thrust Engine company of Chicago Illinois. The engine I own is a 2 cylinder, 2 stroke, horizontally opposed and is air cooled. Using the spark plugs and magneto system as a gauge, the vintage would be 1920's. My hope is to obtain specifications, parts source, operating manuals and the like. Any information would be great! Thank you
