Linebacker II – Taking It Downtown

April 2, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

This presentation will look at the background leading up to the Presidential ordered bombing missions over North Vietnam. It will examine the differences between B-52D and B-52G in relation to some of the losses of aircraft sustained. And finally, we’ll all experience a “typical” bomb run complete with SAM and AAA calls between the crew and the reset of a 3 ship cell.
Presenter: Lt. Col. Howard Butcher
