Nguyễn Hồng Nhị
Nguyễn Hồng Nhị was a MiG-21 fighter ace of the Vietnam People's Air Force's 921st Fighter Regiment. Eight kills have been attributed to him with three confirmed by the United States Air Force. However, it was common practice for American pilots to claim that they were downed by surface-to-air missiles or anti-aircraft guns, this being considered "less embarrassing" than losing in a dogfight
