        i've found this on Wikipedia. very interesting passage of a great Pilot!
        Godspeed Neil!

        Armstrong first saw action in the Korean War on August 29, 1951, as an escort for a photo reconnaissance plane over Songjin.[16] On September 3, 1951, Armstrong flew armed reconnaissance over the primary transportation and storage facilities south of the village of Majon-ni, west of Wonsan; while he was making a low bombing run at about 350 mph (560 km/h), Armstrong's F9F Panther was hit by anti-aircraft fire. While trying to regain control, Armstrong collided with a pole at a height of about 20 feet (6.1 m), which sliced off an estimated three feet of the Panther's right wing.[17] Armstrong was able to fly the plane back to friendly territory, but due to the loss of the aileron, ejection was his only safe option. He planned to eject over water and await rescue by Navy helicopters, and therefore flew to an airfield near Pohang, but his ejection seat was blown back over land.[18] A jeep driven by a room-mate from flight school picked Armstrong up; it is unknown what happened to the wreckage of No. 125122 F9F-2

          Armstrong was a top notch pilot who always amazed me with his humility. Definitely The Right Stuff.

          I remember Joining this science club just to get the free Model of the lunar landing with the CM overhead. I would get these books every month and have to lick and stick (like Postsge stamps) the Color plates. I learned about so much science from those books. They were pretty neat. My dad got sick of them after about 9 months and canceled but i didn't care I had done it for the Model LOL!!!

            Neil was the best of the best and showed total control to get the lander down(to avoid) a rocky cratered area on the moon and bring it down safely. I remember this it was my first memory in my life.

                    I was eleven years old at that time and just moved to Okla from Dallas.
                    I watched that for hours and hours.
