VQ-1 and prior units 1951 to 1955 had an
excellent safety record in spite of several
Mig attacks. At night the Migs had a problem
getting lined up for an attack if the P4M
got low doing tight turns.This also prevent-
a radar directed attack.
The loss of P4M 124362 in 1956 was the re-
sult of following operational directive to
maintain course and speed!
Tracers lighting up the night were a good
deterrence.
