KC-135 "Combat Lightning" crew members are seated in a briefing room at the U-Tapao Royal Thai Navy Airfield, in Thailand. A briefing officer explains their mission, using charts and a map labeled SECRET Noforn (no foreign access) showing Vietnam and the Gulf of Tonkin. The briefer points to an area in the Gulf, and sketches a figure eight, showing where and how the KC-135 should maneuver in a holding pattern during its mission. Crew members rise and leave at the end of the briefing. View of a Strategic Air Command EC-135L that arrived on May 29, 1967, along with another, to support 24 hour "Combat Lightning" operations. Ground crewman directs the EC-135L as it taxis out and then takes off, past a C-130 aircraft holding short of the active runway. (Narrator notes that by the end of July, 1967, there were four "Combat Lightning" C-135 aircraft operating at U-Tapao airfield.)

B-52D strategic bombers, converted to carry conventional munitions, in Operation Arc Light, at U-Tapao during Vietnam War. Numerous U.S. Air Force B-52D bombers of the Strategic Air Command (SAC) are parked in concrete revetments at U-Tapao Royal Thai Air Force Base, Thailand. A single B-52 begins to taxi out of its parking place. As it turns toward the camera, sunlight glints off its windshield. It taxis slowly between the other parked aircraft. Scene shifts to a B-52 moving slowly along a taxiway towards the active runway, where two other B-52s are holding short. Low mountains dominate the background. Next, the taxiing B-52 continues along, behind only one other holding short of the active runway. (These three B-52s are likely leaving on a 3-aircraft Arc Light mission over Vietnam.) View of another B-52 taxiing past one parked in a revetment, while another B-52 departs on a long takeoff role along the active runway, in the background. Camera focuses on a B-52 taking off and becoming airborne.
