Untitled[edit]

I'm happy to see someone finally create a VNAF page. I'm the son of a VNAF F-5 captain and was on the front lines of the DMZ on the Da Nang base as a toddler. Bomb raids on the base were an all too common occurence. I was saddened to see that with all the other Vietnam War related pages, no VNAF page was ever setup before.. The VNAF is now defunct, but they will never be forgotten. Anyone interested in the VNAF should really check out http://vnaf.net --hvn73 07:46, 1 August 2006 (UTC)

Userbox[edit]

I've prepared some userboxes for different Air Forces freaks - if you would like to use it, feel free to copy & paste following code in your Babel Tower or another place:

{{User:Piotr Mikołajski/Userboxes/VNAF}}

When properly copied, should be displayed like below. --Piotr Mikołajski 07:22, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

That's a cool user box design, Piotr Mikołajski. Anynobody 08:41, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

What about the air commandos?[edit]

The history section breaks off abruptly, just before Operation Farm Gate. In 1961, the air commandos of the 4400th Combat Crew Training Squadron began training the VNAF in counter-insurgency air operations. Although I know this, I don't have the reference to hand. Could someone please include this bit of history?

  • Prefer South Vietnam Air Force since South Vietnam is the name of the old country page, and it's more obvious what it means. Many people not know that "Republic of Vietnam" means the old South Vietnam rather than present day Vietnam.  — Amakuru (talk) 18:50, 10 September 2016 (UTC)

  • Support move to South Vietnam Air Force per WP:UCN, as this appears to the common name used in a wide variety of sources, and is the least ambiguous name. - BilCat (talk) 08:15, 11 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Prefer South Vietnam Air Force ; the only Vietnam that now exists is the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, as this is the one currently in the UN and recognized by all countries; South Vietnam ceased to exist on 30 April 1975 and its last remaining unit, the KC705 and its "exile government" in California were disbanded long ago. In short. as of September 2016, the word Vietnam solely, only and exclusively refers to the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.
  • South Vietnam Air Force would be incorrect, since that wasn't the actual name of the organization, and the capitalization is wrong too. South Vietnamese air force would be grammatically correct, but again, usually we title the articles of military branches on the proper noun of the organization. For example, the South Korean air force is labelled "Republic of Korea Air Force", since that's what they use to call themselves. – Illegitimate Barrister (talkcontribs), 08:19, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

South Vietnam Air ForceSouth Vietnamese air force – "South Vietnam Air Force" [sic] is not a proper noun, so the capitalization is gramatically incorrect. – Illegitimate Barrister (talkcontribs), 07:32, 6 December 2016 (UTC)
