I am stunned! You guys know how to make an old man cry. I have a photo of this plane in HKG
as I am getting onboard, and the "Clipper Black Hawk" is by the door! And to think I only live one hour from this part of my history! THANKS A MILLION! I'll never forget this!! We came into HKG
over the city and down between the housing area to line up with the runway...Damn! Glad we were all so drunk and loose! That was one strange sight. The Capt. Told us he could smell Chinese food cooking as he was lining up with the field (Kai Tac) and if we wanted to know that the official flag of Hong Kong was, look out the window at all the colorful laundry on all the balconies! That was the HKG
flag. Six of the people on that flight with me in my unit (1st/501st Inf, 101st Airborne Div) died about three weeks after we got back to Nam. Today I dedicate this happy memory, and the miracle of finding this plane 33 years later, to them.
