My high school instructor was a U.S. Marine F-8E Crusader mechanic in Vietnam. Their planes would not carry ordinance and were used only for low-level reconnaissance. He sad they would comeback with bamboo spears and arrows lodged into the bottom of the planes. The villagers would use hot coals to make the ends hard as steel. Most of the time, the pilots had no clue until they landed and got out of the plane.
