Wild Weasel Anti-SAM Mission In Vietnam

 VIDEO HERE  (1 hour 18 minutes)

Sorry guys, I got busted on this one. I thought I was posting a documentary with actual footage and it's not. And I obviously didn't watch it beforehand.

What happened was I had scheduled everything but the 4 PM military post and I was going nuts trying to find a good subject. I finally came up with the Wild Weasels, went to youtube and pulled up a video and posted it about 2 this afternoon, figuring to watch it Saturday sometime.

  1. That was a video game type video? I went down a rabbit hole and watched a couple of other videos about Wild Weasel ECM work.

    In my former life, used to train them.

    1. I used to be one (F4G's at Spangdahlem - 81TFS)

      In Vietnam, the us did not have any twin-tailed fighter aircraft..so if the first 10 seconds of this is so fucked up, why should I bother with any more of it?

    2. If you were flying in the late 70's, our RBS site, "Courtroom", probably trained you.

      The 50TFW out of Hahn, the 36TFW out of Bitburg as well as the 86TFW out of Rammstein. And the 48TFW out of Lakenheath with F-4D's and F-111's. The 31 TFW out of Aviano, Italy.
