Peace On You; A-37 Tactical Air Strike

Published October 9, 2020 21 Views

Rumble I was a young, 22-year old helicopter pilot in Vietnam flying in IV Corps when I had an opportunity to fly a sortie in an A-37 Dragonfly fighter jet. Naturally, I took them up on the offer. I only had a Super 8mm camera with me and two reels of Kodak film. Recently, I found the footage and decided to make a short story of that particular flight. I transferred the 8mm film to HD 1080p by using my Nikon D7000 and a Canon variable speed projector.
