Aerial views of U.S. Air Force aircraft as it drops general-purpose bombs on riverbank huts and buildings during Vietnam War
Vietnam Date:1965, March 7 Duration:3 min 5 sec Sound:NO SOUND
views from tail camera of a U.S. Air Force A-1E aircraft bombing enemy targets along a river bank during the Vietnam war. Large explosions behind the aircraft raise clouds of brown smoke from general purpose bombs it has dropped. Scene shifts to flight above jungle canopy, transitioning to low pass over group of huts along a river. The aircraft seems to be on a strafing run, producing a moderate explosion at one building and a small one at another. The view again shows a jungle canopy below, followed by heavy smoke and some flames on the ground, as pilot flies over a river bank already under attack by A-1E aircraft. View as camera aircraft makes low pass over several huts along the river bank. (Note: The A1E aircraft on this mission is believed to be from the 1st Air Commando Squadron, operating out of Bien Hoa Air Base.)
