|Return With Honor
When a settlement to the Vietnam war was finally negotiated, the first 40 American POWs released were flown back on a specially painted Lockheed C-141A Starlifter on 12 February 1973 during Operation Homecoming. Dubbed the "Hanoi Taxi," this same aircraft served with the 445th Airlift Wing as a virtual flying museum honoring those who endured confinement during the war. The Hanoi Taxi was retired to the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force in 2006. (This Aerocature was specially created for the 1998 Tailhook Symposium.)
Note: Each month a different image from the current calendar year is featured here. To avoid
the gnawing 12-month period of suspense to see all 12 pieces (along with lots of aviation
anniversaries (When did the first pig fly?), incredible trivia (What is Godzilla's "birthday"?),
and outrageous quotes from people that should know better) place your
order for the Aerocatures Calendar now!
