    I remember watching that plane take off from Hanoi and then again when it landed back on U.S. soil. It was less than a year after my discharge! Very moving then and still more now seeing them again after all these years.

    It brought tears to my eyes.

    There is really no way any of us can know the value of the "Hanoi Taxi" unless we were there.

    May God continue to bless and care for those who rode her home to freedom.....
  4. A most moving tribute, Berto. She was a grand old bird indeed, and worthy of the men she carried to so many distant lands.
