The first American casualty of Operation Desert Storm came on the night of January 17, 1991. LCDR Scott "Spike" Speicher was piloting an F/A-18C Hornet from VFA-81 "Sunliners" when his aircraft crashed. According to a fellow pilot on the same mission the F/A-18C was at 28,000 feet and hit by an R-40 missile fired from an Iraqi MiG-25PDS believed to be flown by Lt. Zuhair Dawood of the IrAF 84th Squadron. LCDR Speicher was listed as MIA but later changed to KIA.

Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-25PDS Foxbat-E

Designed as a high-speed, high-altitude interceptor to counter the threat posed by the US XB-70 Valkyrie bomber, the MiG-25 was first flown on September 9th, 1964. The airframe was designed around a pair of massive Tumansky R-15(B) turbojet engines, capable of propelling it to a top speed of around Mach 3. The Foxbat is one of the fastest production aircraft to enter service. In addition to the interceptor variants, numerous reconnaisance variants were also produced. The MiG-25 has seen service with several air forces besides Russia including those of Iraq, Egypt, Libya and Syria.
