Month later I was a Pilot in Command with my own Huey and crew and again I heard on 243.00 about a heavy artillery strike. I plotted the coordinates and then flew until I was about five miles south of the area at about 2,000 feet.
And then I saw it and it was utterly awesome. Each B-52 can carry 108 750 pound bombs and if you have a flight of 9 b-52's , well, that is 972 bombs all going off in about twenty seconds. It sounds like a long roll of thunder!
After it was over I flew low over the area and I watch a few "little people" staggering around among the bomb craters. I guess they did not hear the whop, whop from my rotor blades!!!
And Jacques thinks we should give our enemies b-52's so we would all be equal. Hell, I don't ever want to be equal. Maybe they will think twice before they shoot at an American!
Oh, the little people had a tunnel system under the hills near Cu Chi. I don't know how many be buried alive but it sucks to be an enemy of America!
Oh, contrary to this video, we did not use gas. And if you tunnel was just a few meters below the surface, it would collapse.
They used delay fuses on the bombs and the bombs would hit at supersonic speed and bury themselves ten-twenty feet down before they blew up and any tunnel within 50 would cave in!
