Remembering Air Vietnam

Mon Dec 17, 2007 12:18 pm

I'm talking about the airline that folded when Saigon fell in 1975. Great logo and variety of aircrafts!

1. I need data, memories, anything that you remember about the airline.

2. Your brief trip reports, flying experiences with Air Vietnam.

3. Anybody knows where Air Vietnam Caravelle jet and B707 flew-----routes, schedules appreciated

4. Anybody knows which VN aircrafts flew out/escape routes from Saigon before the 1975 fall?

5. Anybody knows all the refugee flights made by Air Vietnam?

6. website addresses of any Air Vietnam data-----------example: www.air-america.net/airviet.htm

Thanks for all the info.

Amazing that they still flew mid of 1974 from SGN to VTE! Their entire schedule can be found on the website provided by you: http://www.air-america.net/images/Airrvn/air-viet-schede-1974.jpg

No caption for the above photo but it appears to be Tokyo Haneda (HND).
