Retired Lt. Col. Robert Pardo in front of a 333rd Fighter Squadron F-15E Strike Eagle during a tour of Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, North Carolina, Oct. 10, 2014. Pardo is known for his “Pardo’s Push” maneuver as a 433rd Tactical Fighter Squadron F-4 Phantom pilot stationed at Ubon Royal Thai AFB, Thailand, when he saved another F-4 aircrew from having to eject in North Vietnam by pushing their plane in the air over the Laotian border and into relative safety.
