Southeast Asia War Gallery

In the Southeast Asia War Gallery, visitors can view aircraft and exhibits that convey the U.S. Air Force's involvement in the conflict. Key air campaigns such as Operation Rolling Thunder and Operation Linebacker I and II -- the latter of which applied enough pressure on North Vietnam to compel them to an eventual cease-fire -- are examples of significant operations featured in the Southeast Asia War section. The area displays aircraft such as a B-52D, which participated in Operation Linebacker I and II; workhorse fighters such as the F-4C flown by then-Col. Robin Olds and the F-105; and fighters flown against the Air Force by North Vietnam. Southeast Asia War Gallery Video.
