Bullet through the Binding

This is the logbook for Shark 165 (tail number on the logbook is 66-15165). While on a mission in 1968, a VC bullet entered the bottom of the aircraft and passed through the spine of the book from the bottom, not touching either the front or back cover. The logbook is kept in a "pocket" at the back of the center console between the two pilots. The bullet exited near the overhead circuit breaker panel. (Photo by Jim McDaniel, 1968.)
