Beschreibung:

Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: This is the 12th Edition and contains a number of updates, not only from some earlier structure issues, but from feedback from a wide variety of readers, from our unit, other Mohawk units and from USAF pilots that filled in more details of missions, call signs, and threats we all faced, mostly over Laos during this "Not So Secret War. " There are nearly 380 action packed pages of the true accounts from flying over 500 combat missions in Laos, North & South Vietnam in a Grumman OV-1 Mohawk, the armed, single-pilot, ejection-seat aircraft that was a key player in the secret war run by the CIA in Laos. The 20th ASTA/131st Aviation Company was the only Mohawk unit, of five in SE Asia, that flew only outside of South Vietnam until the last months of the war and was flying the machine gun and rocket equipped attack versions of the Mohawk. There are more than 25 great photos weaved through this interesting book. The book is filled with these events and is not written as a novel or narrative, but goes directly to the mission action, loses, crashes, shoot downs, missiles and MiGs faced by this truly unique Army combat unit. From a separate base in northern Thailand we, along with Air America, flew for years in the CIA's Secret War in Northern Laos. Nightly we flew our Mohawks up against the Chinese border and working on real-time night attacks of Chinese trucks and tanks moving across the north end of the Laotian Plain of Jars. We would find the targets--and attack, night after night after night. Unfortunately, our unit losses were staggering and shocking , even to us--losing more aircraft and men than all four of the other Mohawk units combined. Many of our men ended up MIA's in Laos and North Vietnam never to be seen again--even after the war. They disappeared. You get shot down in Laos, or up along the Chinese border, and you disappeared,-- forever. Buchnummer des Verkäufers

The 20th ASTA/131st Aviation Company was the only Mohawk unit, of five in SE Asia, that flew only outside of South Vietnam until the last months of the war and was flying the machine gun and rocket equipped attack versions of the Mohawk.

From a separate base in northern Thailand we, along with Air America, flew for years in the CIA's Secret War in Northern Laos. Nightly we flew our Mohawks up against the Chinese border and working on real-time night attacks of Chinese trucks and tanks moving across the north end of the Laotian Plain of Jars.

Inhaltsangabe: There are nearly 400 action packed pages of the true accounts from flying over 500 combat missions in North Vietnam and Laos in a Grumman OV-1 Mohawk, the armed, single-pilot, ejection-seat aircraft that was a key player in the secret war run by the CIA.

This was the only Mohawk unit of four that flew only outside of South Vietnam (until the last months of the war) and the only unit flying the machine gun and rocket equipped attack versions of the Mohawk.

We were almost all just 20-25 year old Army pilots in the Mohawk and we were flying in the only Mohawk unit (of five in Vietnam) that flew exclusively in North Vietnam and Laos until the last months of the fateful war.

From a separate base in northern Thailand we, along with Air America, flew for six years in the CIA's Secret War in Northern Laos, up against the Chinese border and working on real-time night attacks of Chinese trucks and tanks moving across the Plain of Jars. We would find the targets--and attack, night after night after night.

Our unit losses were staggering and shocking, even to us--losing more aircraft and men than all four of the other Mohawk units combined.

Many of our young men ended up MIA's in Laos and North Vietnam never to be seen again--even after the war. They disappeared. Get shot down in Laos or up along the Chinese border and you disappeared, forever.
