Caribous in Vietnam

Bad Landing
Captain Peter A. Bird, USAF (The Petester in his younger days) lecturing on the dangers of getting too high on a single engine approach to a high pressure altitude airport and then trying to execute a go-around. This picture was taken at Dalat Cam Ly (airport elevation 4400') and that was reputed to be the cause of this accident. (The crew was reported to have survived relatively intact).
