According to Wang Xiangyi's memoir,"then my comrades did military exercises repeatedly in the air.We even hung the model airplanes on the iron wires in front of our beds.We thought carefully about the whole process…"
On March 24th 1965,the U.S.unmanned air reconnaissance aircraft appeared in the air.Wang Xiangyi took off and made a single sortie.It was time to test this new fighting method.
He discovered the target aircraft when there was 30 kilometers between the two.He corrected the course while climbing.When he was 3,800 meters away from the U.S.aircraft,he immediately pulled himself up.When there was 411 meters between him and the rival,he pressed the release knob and fired two guns at once.The left wing of the U.S.aircraft was shot and smoke rose.
Wang Xiangyi followed hard upon the U.S.aircraft and fired again. This time the latter fell into the sea in straight line.
The Sharp Knife Squad won the first battle.
On March 31st,another U.S.aircraft appeared in the sky.Shu Jicheng received orders and first made a single sortie to intercept them.Wang Xiangyi took off later and stood by at a certain height.Shu ]icheng discovered the U.S.aircraft 30 kilometers away from him.He soon zoomed at the limiting altitude to make a close contact with it under the ground guidance.To hit the target,Shu Jicheng did not press the release knob to fire until there was 110 meters between him and the U.S.aircraft.The latter was shot down and plummeted to the north of Sanya,Hainan Province.
On August 21st,a U.S.drone first made a feigned flight towards the north of Vietnam.Then it suddenly turned to the right and flew to Hainan Island.
