  • Video: US Army helicopter operations in South Vietnam

    Found this great DoD film on YouTube about early US helicopter operations during the Advisory period in Vietnam, it offers a unique chance to see CH-21s, UH-1As and 1Bs in action in the Delta and elsewhere (running time 24 mins):

    Brilliant clip, thanks Boonie.

    I have a good DVD that shows the H-21 in action and I was amazed at how they could through these birds around in the air. They are not as clumsy as they appear.
    Loved the UH1-A footage with the guns fixed to the skids.
    I am not stuck in the 60's and 70's -I choose to live there :)
