The North Vietnamese lost two Mig-17's to A-1 Skyraiders during the war. One was shotdown on June 20,1965 and the other on Oct 9,1966. In both cases, it was 4 20mm cannon fire

A couple more places I've recently seen MiG-17s on display: The 8th AF museum in Savannah, GA, and the air museum in Sevierville, TN. There is also a civilian airshow team flying all-red 17s (sponsored by Smirnoff vodka, I think).
