Vietnam Date:1965, March 7 Duration:1 min 18 sec Sound:NO SOUND
Dramatic aerial views from rear camera mounted on a U.S. Air Force Douglas A-1E Skyraider aircraft flying low over a coconut forest by a river in Vietnam. Several White Phosphorus and napalm bursts occur on the ground behind the aircraft as it makes a strafing and bombing run over enemy positions. Huts can be seen interspersed in the forest. The aircraft pulls up and climbs at the end of the attack run. (Note: The A1E aircraft [unseen] on this mission is believed to be from the 1st Air Commando Squadron, operating out of Bien Hoa Air Base, and piloted by Captain Chipdo, USAF).
