F-100 Last Combat Mission

Video compilation of (sometimes rough) 16mm footage taken in Viet Nam documenting the last mission of four Bien Hoa F-100 pilots in Jan 1969. One of the participating pilots was the 510 TFS/CC at the time (“The Buzzards of Bien Hoa”) and he assigned an individual to film the event. There are aircraft and personnel ground movement sequences plus airborne gun and aft-looking pod camera scenes of rocket, strafe, and high-drag employments. Other 8mm scenes have been added and edited to help make a “story” that every Viet Nam F-100 pilot can relate to. Set to music, it lasts about 15 minutes.
