nearby oil installations. The following month, US aircraft struck North Vietnamese forces inside the Vietnamese Demilitarized zone (DMZ). Vietnam War In 1965, Eighth Air Force entered combat again, this time in Southeast Asia. At first, the Eighth deployed its B-52 bomber and KC-135 tanker units from the U.S. to operating bases in Guam, Okinawa and Thailand. Then in April 1970, SAC moved the Eighth without personnel or equipment to Andersen AFB Guam, absorbing resources of the 3d Air Division. At Anderson, the Eighth took over the direction of all bombing and refueling operations in Southeast Asia. The intensive bombing of Hanoi and Haiphong during 11 days in December 1972, known as "LINEBACKER II", was but one highlight of those war years. Importantly, the Eighth's bombing effectiveness influenced the North Vietnamese to end hostilities. With the end of combat in Southeast Asia, the Eighth Air Force moved without personnel or equipment to Barksdale AFB Louisiana on 1 January 1975, absorbing the resources of Second Air Force. Vietnam War During the Vietnam War, the Neptune was used by the US Navy as a gunship, an overland reconnaissance and sensor deployment aircraft, and in its traditional role as a maritime patrol aircraft. The Neptune was also utilized by the U.S. Army's 1st Radio Research Company (Aviation), call sign "Crazy Cat," located at Cam Ranh Bay, as an electronic "ferret" aircraft. Observation Squadron 67 (VO-67), call sign "Lindy", was the only P-2 Neptune aircraft squadron to ever receive the Presidential Unit Citation. VO-67 lost three OP-2E aircraft and 20 aircrew to ground fire during its secret missions into Laos and Vietnam in 1967–68. The ROCAF Taiwan's secret 34th Squadron's RB-69A P2V-7U ELINT SIGINT (Signals intelligence) aircraft flew a low level electronic reconnaissance from Da Nang, flying over Thanh Hoa province on 20 August 1963 to investigate an air resupply drop zone that turned out to be a set trap for a Republic of China Air Force (ROCAF) C-123B airdrop mission 10 days earlier due to the air-inserted agents having been captured and turned. Next year, an air defense radar mapping mission was also flown by 34th Squadron's RB-69A P2V-7U aircraft into North Vietnam and Laos on the night of 16 March 1964. The RB-69A took off from Da Nang, flew up the Gulf of Tonkin before coasting in near Haiphong, then flew down North Vietnam and the Laos border. The mission was requested by SOG (Studies and Observations Group) for helping plan the insert or resupply of agents. Seven AAA (Anti-aircraft warfare) sites, 14 early warning radar sites and two CGI radar signals were detected. Pocock, Chris. ''The Black Bats: CIA Spy Flights Over China From Taiwan, 1951–1969''. Atglen, Pennsylvania: Schiffer Publishing, 2010. ISBN 978-0764335136. Hai Phong Railway Station, established in 1902, is the eastern terminus of the Hanoi–Hai Phong railway line, also known as the Yunnan–Vietnam Railway. Built at the initiative of the French (French Indochina) during their occupation, the railway once connected Haiphong to the city of Kunming in China (People's Republic of China)'s Yunnan province, although service along the Chinese portion of the line is currently suspended. Rail travel from Haiphong is still possible, with connections to the rest of the Vietnamese railway network (Rail transport in Vietnam) possible via Hanoi. Besides this, there are lots of railway roads in the whole city to served the requirement of moving goods out of and into ports. In May 1972 ''Newport News'' returned to the gunline for her third combat tour in WESTPAC. During the summer of 1972 the ship, along with the guided missile cruisers ''USS Oklahoma City'', and ''USS Providence'' (as well as several screening destroyers including the USS Hanson) took part in a high speed night bombardment of Haiphong harbor. Known as the Three Cruiser Raid, it was the last time a major shore bombardment would be undertaken by multiple large (cruiser sized) ships.

nmi km 0 from its launch point. On a 27 April 1972, a flight of eight Air Force (United States Air Force) fighters, two carrying 2000-pound laser-guided bombs and two carrying Walleye IIs, attacked the Thanh Hoa Bridge. Cloud cover prevented the LGBs from being used, but five of the Walleyes locked on, causing heavy damage to the bridge, even though failing to bring down a span. On 13 May, the Air Force finally brought down the bridge with 3,000 and 2,000-pound LGBs. The Vietnamese, however, soon repaired the bridge, compelling the Navy and Air Force to fly 13 more missions against the target. On one such mission on 23 October, four A-7 Corsair pilots from the carrier USS ''America'' (USS America (CV-66)) took down the bridge with a combination of Walleye IIs and conventional 2000-pound bombs. During the war in Vietnam (First Indochina War), General Jean Etienne Valluy was the French commander who replaced Philippe Leclerc de Hauteclocque and attempted to wipe out the Vietminh in one stroke, but failed. The French colonial government had co-existed uneasily with the Japanese occupying force during the Second World War but had been swept aside by Japanese military action in March 1945, leading to the Vietnamese declaration of independence in August 1945. By 1947, the French had re-occupied the south of Viêt-nam and Valluy in temporary command there sent troops north to re-establish control of Tonkin. Phillippe Devillers, Histoire du Viêt-Nam de 1940 à 1952. Editions du Seuil, Paris. Third edition,1952, pp. 331-340 His French infantry with armored units went through Haiphong fighting house to house (house-to-house fighting) against Vietminh squads. French aircraft zoomed in to bomb and strafe while the cruiser Suffren (French cruiser Suffren), in the harbor, lobbed shells into the city, demolishing whole neighborhoods of flimsy structures. Refugees streamed into nearby provinces with their belongings in baskets and on bicycles, and the naval guns shelled them as well. Days passed before the French finally overcame the last Vietminh snipers. The Vietnamese claimed that the French actions caused twenty thousand deaths. A French admiral later estimated that no more than six thousand Vietnamese had been killed. Vu Quoc Uy, then chairman of the Haiphong municipal committee, said in an interview in 1981 that the toll had been between five hundred and a thousand. Actively acting in the field of culture and art, Vu Quoc Uy was suddenly arrested and put under house arrest by the French in 1944. In April 1945, he escaped from house arrest and intended to go to the liberation area in Viet Bac but was reassigned to Haiphong. After participation in a uprising in Hanoi, Vu Quoc Uy was once again assigned to Haiphong and gathered the forced and raised in army to seize power on August 23, 1945. As a title of a Chairman of Interim revolutionary people's committee of Haiphong, Vu Quoc Uy declared that the old authority was overthrown and then established the Interim revolutionary people's committee of Haiphong. Then he held concurrently Chairman of City defending committee. In precarious situation, Vu Quoc Uy and other member of Haiphong Party committees made the best of great solidarity though of Ho Chi Minh in daily directing and constantly determined "our top task is to built a whole people's solidarity block to advance revolutionary cause successful". Vu Quoc Uy was interested in building Haiphong Democratic Party committee as a member of it. After Haiphong-Kien An entered the resistance against the French (France) colonialists, Vu Quoc Uy participated in inter-province Hai-Kien as a standing member, Head of disseminating and training department, and Director of To Hieu school. As these above positions, Vu Quoc Uy and the whole school staff overcame hard period in its Deo Voi branch in Dong Trieu district, Quang Yen province and other branches opened many training classes for 1000 staff, Party members to serve struggling task and seizing the city. After the South was absolutely liberated, Vu Quoc Uy was appointed Vice chairman and Chairman of Foreign affairs committee until his retirement. Michel Henry was born in Haiphong, French Indochina (now Vietnam), and he lived in French Indochina until he was seven years old. Following the death of his father, who was an officer in the French Navy, his mother and he settled in metropolitan France. While studying in Paris, he discovered a true passion for philosophy, which led to the desire to make it his profession. From June 1943 onwards, he was committed to the French Resistance where he joined the maquis of the Haut Jura (Jura mountains) under the code name of Kant. He often had to come down from the mountains in order to accomplish missions in Nazi-occupied Lyon, an experience of clandestinity that deeply marked his philosophy. Background After the declaration of war on 19 December 1946, the French Union forces had made significant progress by capturing the major cities Haiphong, Hanoi, Lang Son, Cao Bang as well as nearly the western and southern region of Tonkin, which was the stronghold of the Viet Minh movement. The reasons for the fast advance were due to the superior firepower, naval and air support, also by then, the Vietnamese army has exhausted their resources trying to recapture major cities before French reinforcements could arrive. The major forces of the Viet Minh were dug in the eastern part of Tonkin, which know as Việt Bắc, or "An toàn khu" (Safe Base). There remained only a greater gap between the towns Cao Bang in the north and Yên Bái in the south. During April 1947 Ho Chi Minh made a last attempt to achieve a ceasefire and to continue the negotiations with the French government about Vietnamese independence from 1946. But the French only demanded his surrender, because the position of the Vietnamese forces seemed to be desperate. But on 26 April he refused the French, offering: ''"In the French Union is no place for cowards. I would be one, if I would accept."'' During the rest of the spring and the summer, the French made assaults to the bases of the Viet Minh troops in Tonkin but could not force them to a conventional battle. Instead the Viet Minh returned when the French moved on. The following summer, ''Alden'', in company with her sister ships and WikiPedia:Hai Phong

purposes in constructing the French-built railway from Haiphong to Kunming, completed in 1910, was to service the mines. A branchline was built from Gejiu to Mengzi between 1915 and 1928. During the last years of the Qing dynasty (1644–1911 12), the mines were organized by the Chinese-owned Gejiu Tin Company, but the company was deficient in capital (capital (economics)), technical skill, and managerial efficiency and was replaced by a joint state-private company, the Gejiu Tin-Mining Company

On the photorecon side, VMCJ-1 was operating in a science which had become much more sophisticated and was now called "imagery intelligence." As a trading center, the city gradually began to lose its importance beginning from the early 20th century. The importance of Mengzi was ended by the construction of the French railway (Yunnan–Vietnam Railway) from Haiphong to Kunming (the Yunnan provincial capital) in 1906–10. This railway bypassed Mengzi, but in 1915 a branch line was built via the town to the Gejiu tin mines. Apart from a brief respite during the early days of World War II, the town of Mengzi has, nevertheless, steadily declined in importance ever since.
