Summary "Catkiller 3-2 is a memoir of one of the pilots who flew low-flying, unarmed, single-engine aircraft in support of Marine ground units during the Vietnam War. The author was a part of the Army's 220th Reconnaissance Aircraft Company (RAC), which arrived in Vietnam in late June 1965 Because of the shortage of existing Marine Birddogs, the 220th was immediately reassigned to I Corps and came under the operational control of the Marines. The author details the tactics, restrictions, aerial maneuvers, and dangers experienced by the Army pilots and Marine aerial observers during flying these missions. He also discussesf the cultural mores, attitudes, and recreational activity of these young pilots and observers supporting the ground forces."--Provided by publisher..
