Back really early in the “Nam” I flew on an observation mission in an L-19 where a full auto M-14 was used as a “window” gun. The pilot then claimed he flew the first “F-One Niner”!
The “F-One Niner” also had smoke marking rockets under the wings. Last I heard they were trying to find HE rockets to replace replace the smoke on “certain missions”.
