The True Story of a Vietnam Helicopter Pilot and His Crew

Black Cat 21 Cover

Get ready to “pull pitch” this week on Veterans Radio as host Dale Throneberry welcomes fellow Vietnam Huey pilot Bob Ford.

From July 1967 to July 1968, Bob Ford flew over one thousand missions in Vietnam. After the first six weeks, he became an aircraft commander and took over the command of a helicopter detachment at Hue, forty miles from the DMZ—the farthest northern helicopter unit in Vietnam. His tour included the beginning of the siege of Khe Sahn and the Tet Offensive in February 1968 when he and his men manned the perimeter for a three-day and three-night ground attack.
