Naked in Da Nang PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Naked in Da Nang free pdf FACs (forward air controllers) in Vietnam flew low and slow, searching for signs of an elusive enemy. Often they trolled themselves as bait for the NVA troops to try to shoot down. When a friendly unit made contact, having a FAC overhead made their day, because the FACs controlled the bomb , rocket , and napalm laden fast movers, fighter jets, and attack aircraft whose ordnance often made the difference between life and death. They were regarded by many of their air force and naval aviator brethren as insane, suicidal, or both. In addition to the perils of enemy fire which ranged from lucky AK 47 shots to .51 caliber machine guns and SA 7 shoulder fired surface to air missiles, they had to watch out to keep from being blown up in a B 52 Arc Light strike or knocked down by friendly artillery.
