In 1972, Bud Taylor was a pilot in VF-161, flying missions from USS Midway over Vietnam. In 1986, he became the commanding officer of VF-151, once again flying from the Midway. I want to thank Bud's son Jason for allowing me to use these photos. Jason used to have a web site with a gallery dedicated to his father's naval aviation photography and gave me permission to use his father's Midway photos on my site. This gallery gives a rare pilot's-eye view of air combat over Vietnam.
