Yankee Air Pirates Book
( USAF in SEA )

If you want to purchase this book, contact Francois Millard at yankeeairpirates.book@yahoo.com
Follow updates on http://yankeeairpirates.overblog.com/

140612 - I have my copy and it is the Best Book on Insignia/Clothing I have seen for the USAF in SEA, Jack.
Topics covered in this Volume: Command & Control, Tactical Control, Forward Air Control, Rescue, Electronic Warfare, & Air Police/Security Police units.

Front and Back Covers

The following was written by the Authors
Yankee Air Pirates is a highly detailed look at United States Air Force uniforms and equipment as used during the Vietnam War. This comprehensive book – the first of a multi-volume set – presents hundreds of Air Force named items in over 900 full color photos, giving the reader a precise insight and reference covering fifty-eight Air Force units. Flight suits, utility shirts, jungle jackets, headgear, insignia, weapons, plaques, souvenir lighters, and many theater-made items are featured to illustrate the history of both flying and ground units. Topics covered in this initial volume are: Command & Control, Tactical Control, Forward Air Control, Rescue, Electronic Warfare, and Air Police/Security Police units. An extensive chapter offers a detailed review of uniforms, headgear, and footwear, referenced by model and date.

I have NO connection with the sale of this book; the Authors have been customers of mine for many years.

Memories of a Fighter Pilot
by Colonel Riedel

I have NO connection with the sale of this book, Jack.

The following was written by the Author/Publisher
Colonel Riedel had a rare look at the Vietnam War. He flew three different aircraft in Southeast Asia (SEA) in 1964, 1969-70, and 1972-73. The unfortunate similarities of the conduct of the war during these dates became quite evident in the skies over SEA and resulted in the eventual outcome of the war.

Follow along with Jay as a young boy and his unique boyhood adventures, see how he decided on and attained his goal in life as a fighter pilot, then climb in the cockpits of three different aircraft and fly white-knuckle combat missions over the skies of North Vietnam, South Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, and the Philippines over the span of nine years! It was quite a ride!

I have read "F-8 Crusader BuNo 149210 and its Drivers" by Chris and it goes deep into BuNo 149210's History to include Pilot's Log Books, Patches, Aircraft Profiles, Jackets, Flight Gear, Models, and etc..  This F-8 was flown on eight deployments to SEA, 6 by the Navy and 2 by the Marines; it was then sold to the French Navy and when it was retired Chris acquired the Cockpit section and restored it; it now resides at Chris's home.

( was on the old site as a UI(possible VA-86) )

( some History )
June 1955: VF-84 was assigned the F7U-3M ( nicknamed: Last Chance Vought, Gutless Cutlass, or Ensign Killer )
July 1, 1955: VF-84 was ReDesignated Attack Squadron EIGHTY-SIX (VA-86)
January 1956 to April 1956: Attack Squadron EIGHTY-SIX operating the F7U-3M's Cutlass was assigned to Air Task Group-181 and embarked on a shake-down cruise on the United States Ship Forrestal CVA-59. Once at sea the Gutless Cutlass was pronounced unsafe for carrier operation due to the nose gear collapsing on landing. Prior to arriving in Cuba, the aircraft were launched for Naval Air Station Leeward Point, Cuba. When the ship anchored at Leeward Point, the crew was transferred to Leeward Point for the rest of the cruise. Prior to the Forrestal departing the Cuba area, the aircraft were taken by barge
out to the boat and loaded aboard by crane. Prior to docking in Norfolk, the aircraft were launched and returned to Naval Air Station Oceana, Virginia Beach, Virginia.
May 26, 1957: VA-86 was assigned the A4D-1 (A-4A) Douglas Skyhawk ending the F7U-3M era.
