RAAF Vietnam FAC flying Cessna O-1 Birddog during Vietnam war

Although the Bird Dog was never operated in RAAF service, 36 RAAF fighter pilots were attached to the US Air Force between 1966 and 1971 to serve in the FAC role during the Vietnam War. Many of these pilots flew the Bird Dog on this hazardous duty, and 15 were awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross.
