A unit inactive for decades has been activated by the 177th Fighter Wing of the Air Force. A rabbit wearing a tuxedo and clutching a machine pistol in front of a four-leaf clover is the new mascot for the 306th fighter squadron. In December of 1966, the 306th Tactical Fighter Squadron moved en masse to Tuy Hoa Air Base in southern Vietnam. The unit used interceptor-designed F-100 Super Sabre planes with swept wings. The 306th Tactical Fighter Squadron flew 360,000 combat flights in Vietnam between 1964 and 1971. 193 F-100s were destroyed by enemy anti-aircraft fire and ground troops.
