This video footage is from the late 1960’s.

It shows the Royal Lao Airforce pilots, between 19 and 34 years of age and paid $55 a month and $1.60 per combat mission. They flew 4000 missions a month in T28 planes that were originally built as training planes for the Korean war. They are laden with bombs and napalm. Near the end of the video is a bombing mission to the hand-made Ho Chi Minh Trail.
