Different story

The Hanoi Taxi

60177 C141

A Bit of military history you might be interested in seeing.

C-141 Tail Number 60177 was the last of the 285 C-141's built by Lockheed to
leave active service. She flew 100 POWs out of Hanoion 12 February 1973,
some of them tasting freedom for the first time in six years.. Each POW put
their shot-down date on the face of the oxygen panel during their flight to
Clark Air Base in the Philippines. For her retirement ceremony, some of the
POWs she brought home were brought back for the ceremony and one last flight
by this gracious lady. Most of them are old men now but their enthusiasm,
emotions, and excitement were evident during this flight and retirement
ceremony. She was then flown to Dayton, Ohio where she will spend her final
days in the Air Force Museum.



A very touching video - Be sure to turn on the sound.
