These were shot in Saudi at Al Kharj AB a few days after the cease fire. The one marked as "Iraqi Killer" has a small kill flag on the nose gear door just behind the A/C number. The story may be bogus, but what I heard was that he screwed a Mig's (or whatever kind it was) radar, and flew him into the ground when the 111 turned his terrain following radar on at the last second.  Someone else out there may have better info on this than me.
