Seymour "Sye/Buck" Feldman
Jan. 5, 1949: REAF Macchi MC.205V (in P-51D)
On Dec. 27, two Spitfires, one piloted by Sye Feldman, scrambled to intercept REAF Machis over Al Arish. Feldman was bounced by a Macchi but escaped with minor damage.
Around noon on Jan. 5, Sye Feldman, in a Mustang, with a Spitfire wingman ran into three REAF MC.205Vs. The Israelis jettisoned their bombs, and a failure of either will or equipment prompted one Macchi to flee immediately. Feldman claimed one Macchi destroyed.
