About the Author

A distinguished aviation historian, Michael O'Connor won praise for his biography of World War II Ace of Aces Richard Bong. He followed it up with numerous articles on air combat, while researching the stories of the men who flew from Yankee Station in the years between 1965 and 1975. MiG Killers is the result of fifteen years of labor by one of the finest aviation historians writing today.

Format: Hardcover
This book describes all of the Navy Air-to-Air encounters in Viet Nam, successes as well as failures. The author tells of what went right as well as what went wrong; and the elations and frustrations that resulted. Some of his conclusions will not make people happy, but those conclusions are well researched and documented. Mr. O'Connor also discusses the political and strategic climate throughout the war as related to the air battles. This gives the reader a more complete picture of the air war.
My pilot and I were officially credited with shooting down a MIG-21 in North Viet Nam, and are mentioned in this book. The account of the mission, as well as the other events surrounding it, was accurate to the best of my knowledge.
This book is a great read. It puts everything in perspective for both those who were there as well as those who weren't.

I was a Navy Photographer ,Stationed aboard the Bon Homme Richard CVA31. During that time I made 3 Vietnam cruises aboard the Bonny Dick. I lived and experienced what is talked about in this book It does a great job discribing what it was like. I have several photographes in this book, which I gave Mike in helping him to show what the pilots and crew members went through on Yankee Station. We need more booke like this published. I would be glad to assist anyone interested in working on this subject matter. We need more books and perhaps a movie on the experience of the carrier pilots and the brave sailors aboard those carriers.

Mike O'Connor rates five stars for this excellent view of tailhook MiG killers. Aside from the high production values and tremendous variety of photos, paintings and maps, the text not only corrects some of the official record, but updates it as well. The Navy history office has concentrated increasingly on Vietnam subjects in recent years, and would have been well advised to publish this book itself.

Debrief: an indispensable resource for those interested in the Vietnam air war.

Format: Hardcover
MiG Killers Of Yankee Station by military aviation expert Michael O'Connor is a riveting, comprehensively researched account of the Navy's MiG airwar in Southeast Asia. Filled with interviews and conversations with carrier pilots who fought in the Vietnam War, featuring black-and-white photographs on every page, and enhanced with few original color works of art, as well as an in-depth narration revealing just what it was like to fight and risk one's life in the skies, MiG Killers Of Yankee Station is very highly recommended for Military Aviation enthusiasts and American Military History reference collections.
