"Struggle Home to U-Tapao"

 

The painting depicts "Lilac 03" as she fights for control and begins her slow desent to final at U-Tapao RTAFB. The 105G has done his escort job as he begins to pull up and bank away towards home at Korat RTAFB. The sun breaks over U-Tapao on the left. Gas and various fluids from hundreds of holes are leaking from Lilac 03 as she struggles to make it back after being hit nearby from a SAM over Hanoi. After a tense exhausting flight back, she touches safely home. Others that night were not so lucky. Lilac 03 was.
