Description

Yankee Station and Dixie Station...just two map coordinates in the South China Sea.

It was from these offshore oases that US aircraft waged the heaviest bombing campaign in history, sending a rain of fire against the north, providing air support for US troops in the south, and dispatching search and rescue missions to snatch grounded pilots from enemy territory.
