Only Zero shot down by a pistol

I have never heard of this before. I wonder about all the other little-known acts of heroism that we never hear about.

I would never have imagined anything like that happening except for in the movies.

It does seem surreal, but I'll bet there were even stranger, more miraculous, events during those times. Desperation can drive a man to accomplish the seemingly impossible.

Just living thru a Japanesse POW camp was an amazing feat. I believe it was common in WWI for pilots to take pot shots at each other with their handguns. Do not know if any were successful .
