When I finally saw what looked like a Zero off in the distance, we were still out of range and on a parallel course. I couldn't believe what Bong did. The Japanese aircraft was a good 1,500 meters away when he opened fire on a 90-degree deflection shot. One second the Zero was an airplane, and the next it was a plummeting ball of fire. It was an incredibly long deflection shot, and here I had expected to see him close to point-blank range before firing. After we'd returned to base and landed, I complimented the major on his remarkable shot.
Stay on my wing and watch me," he instructed, as we prepared to take off on an eight-ship fighter sweep up the north coast of New Guinea. We'd been flying along the coastline at about 20,000 feet for a little over an hour when Johnson spotted a pair of Zeros that no one else saw. He signaled for me to follow, and, since we weren't carrying drop tanks that day, down we went. The Zeros were at least 5,000 feet below us, and I never even saw them until we were practically on the tail of one, who was trailing the other about 50 yards.

I caught hell for breaking formation, and I would have caught even worse hell if I'd told my element leader all that I'd done wrong. But there was a plus side too, in that at least I'd fired my guns. And even though I'd probably still been in my Zero-shock phase, I had tangled with one. And now, strangely, I found myself wanting to meet him again and get it settled, one way or the other.
