YANKEE AIR PIRATE AAR FAC Supplemental Report

With grateful thanks to peppergomez whose insightful questions inspired this idea you gotta see this my friend!

Illustrating the YAP ground-war as it happened on this mission.

661121 Michelin Rubber
Weather: - Scattered Clouds 12000 Ft VIS 20 Nm
TOT: - 0745

FAC Report:
Please refer also to main AAR YAP-15. FAC and ground photos compiled here are classified! The following photos refer to positions indicated in the first diagram.

The convoy on the south road was attacked from VC west positions as they entered the plantation. VC south and VC west positions were eventually destroyed by Close Air Support flight Memphis, comprising two (2) F-100D Super Sabres. Elements of VC north closed on the plantation buildings and are believed to have hit one of the strike aircraft, possibly with small arms fire or an RPG.

The VC attack was eventually repulsed, although there were heavy casualties on both sides and a great deal of damage done to the plantation infrastructure. Both Memphis pilots landed safely at Bien Hoa.

Other FAC/Observer reports will follow if people like the idea. I may be able to sneak up the Ho Chi Minh trail one dark night.
