For her actions and bravery in Iraq, USAF Maj. Kim N. Campbelll was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for Heroism.For her actions and bravery, USAF Maj. Kim N. Campbell was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for Heroism.

On April 7, 2003, then-Capt. Kim N. Campbell and her flight lead responded to a call for air support in downtown Baghdad, where an elite unit of the Iraqi Republican Guard had U.S. forces pinned against the Tigris River. Campbell and her wingman faced bad weather before they dove out of the sky and devastated the enemy with rockets and the Warthog's feared 30mm Gatling gun. After successfully hitting their targets, the pilots turned back toward base – and that's when Campbell's jet was rocked by a large explosion, and immediately began pulling to the left and toward the ground.

With numerous caution lights flashing, the one that worried Campbell the most was the hydraulic lights. A quick check confirmed her suspicions: Her hydraulic system had been fried. She would later discover that one of her engines was badly damaged and the fuselage was riddled with hundreds of bullet holes.

Campbell quickly switched to manual inversion, allowing her to fly her Warthog under mechanical control. She then had a decision: try to fly 300 miles back to base, or parachute into hostile territory. This was dicey terrain, so she decided she had to make the flight. Despite the heavily damaged aircraft and terrible weather – including massive dust storms – “Killer Chick” persevered. With the help of a seasoned pilot on her wing, Campbell landed safely back at base – fully prepared to take to the skies again and unleash the Warthog, as well as her moniker, on any opposing forces.
