Just read it on Wiki.

Olds was one of the leading personalities in combat aviation history.
He downed 13 planes during WWII and added a further four during the Vietnam War where he served as the leader of the famous 8th TFW "Wolf pack".


Salute to a great aviator and warrior.

Well blast. He was recently on "Dogfights" on the history channel ref his fight in a P38 then the ambush of NVAF Migs in 66 where they got 7 of them. That was amazing, especially the way he described it. He was the former commander of the USAF academy also. I'm glad they got his interview recorded. Salute.
