Lt Rick Grant/Ens Dave Weighton/AX3 Gary Smith and a second crewman flying in Big Mutha 70  rescue VA-163 A-4E pilot Lt(jg) Ralph Foulks about three miles from the coast of NVN. Flying off the USS Oriskany (CVA-34) his Skyhawk (BuNo 149963) was struck by AAA fire over NVN but he manages to go "feet wet" before ejecting. This was the second rescue of the day for Lt Grant and his crew. Snoopy takes note of the same crew making two rescues in one day. Lt(jg) Foulks was later killed on 5 January 1968 when his A-4E (BuNo 150131) was shot down over NVN.
