Waiting for a Plane

All dressed up; no place to go....

 

Leaving Nam, 1971: A bunch of strangers, and a few friends, waiting for the Freedom Bird to take us home to the States. In my experience, Cam Ranh Bay was sand, cheap shacks, and lots of G.I.s. My Vietnam near-year started at Cam Ranh on January 30; it ended at the same post on December 15.

 

One of my very favorite pictures.

 

Camera: Minolta SR-T 101. Updated to newer scan 11/27/05. Unfortunately, both the only existing print and the negative are damaged beyond my ability to fully repair them.

 

Added to Cream of the Crop as my (current) personal favorite picture 1/8/06.

 

Explored #22 (7/23/2007). Thanks, everyone!
