Few civilians realize the immense role the brave pilots in C-130 aircraft played in the Vietnam War. Now, Major Curt Messex tells the hair raising tales he experienced piloting a C-130.
Imagine flying a boxcar with four engines, loaded with high explosive fuel, at night, low, over a jungle with numerous Viet Cong shooting at you with 23mm, 37mm, and 57mm guns.
You'll "see" tracers zooming by so thick and so bright they light-up your cockpit with an eerie red glow. And in spite of it, you'll have to drop supplies on a postage stamp to needy troops below.
