229th Assault Helicopter Battalion Vietnam

A narrated 8mm movie by a UH1 and Cobra pilot Major Alfred Demailo, (D/229th). Flying around the Bong Son, LZ English, Dak To and LZ Evans areas. Some good historical info from someone who was there. Some disturbing scenes however.

I'd like to experience one of this huge formations. Could we plan a big inter company flight, please?

Hi Nef...We'll see if we can't pull a large formation flight together some time today...if not today may next weekend. The "C" company guy's were flying large formations last night...watch for that group. They do formation flight quite a bit.
