I was EW with BAR-E15. We took off night 1 in the Charcoal 1 spot. As two planes crapped out before we got to target area we moved up two spots. As with Charcoal 1 and others, we had SAMs tracking directly on us. Immediately after release we made our PTT (post target turn) and Pilot saw 3 SAMs out of the CP window tracking directly on us (to our right). He made a sharp 60 degree bank turn to left, then 70 degree bank back to right, dropping altitude as a result. I noted two downlinks, but not the third. Lots of buffeting and noise, naturally. Not until years later did we learn that we returned to Anderson with 30 - 50 holes in the upper canopy, not noticeable during post flight walk around. Close call. Great crew coordination.

As a man on the ground in Vietnam, we prayed for those who flew over us and were thankful we weren't on the receiving end of their ordinance.

A friend recently asked a question about Linebacker II and in search of the answer I found this site. Great to see history being captured on this important topic. I was with 307th AMS bomb-nav shop at UT from Sep '71 with DOS Sep '72. We set the table with Freedom Train and Linebacker early 1972. Appreciate all who participated in LBII and taking SAC to the next level and especially those that paid the ultimate price to help end that conflict and get the POW's out. Another anniversary is coming. Salute to all that participated.

I was an AF brat living on base at Barksdale AFB in 1972. Now I'm a retired Master Sergeant (Vehicle Maintenance) writing a book about my time as a brat and active service. This site is a great tribute and it has the info I was looking for the strike package info what cell numbers were hit on what day. Thanks
