ABSTRACT
The article reports on the avalanche of U.S. fighter-bombers aircrafts that is used for strikes against North Vietnam. The planes have spot-bombed the Mu Gia Pass, one of the three most important supply funnels to the south. The bombs sent a roll down into the pass, thus blocking the vital artery. The planes sporadically bombed and attacked stalled convoys, sending large fireballs into the air and, in one raid, destroying 42 trucks, a record number for the war.
