Deja Vu: Vietnam Part 3 (Tan Son Nhut USAF Base)

We continue with Part 3 of the 16 part series Deja Vu: Vietnam. The series of videos is made using Google Earth to focus in on various parts of Saigon and surrounding areas of Vietnam. Then overlaid with video footage filmed in 2007 with ‘fade backs’ of videos and photos going back to various time points in prior years. Some all the way back to 1882 Saigon.

The series began landing at Tan Son Nhut Airport (Part 1).

Then in Part 2 we traveled to the area across from Tan Son Nhut Airport main terminal to the MACV area, Dodge City, public swimming pool, memories of Nancy (a missionaries daughter), Tan Son Nhut’s rear gate area, old military golf course, Joint General Staff compound gate, and the old Tan Son Nhut civilian airport main gate area.

Now in Part 3 we’ll continue by visiting the Tan Son Nhut USAF Base area, USAF side gate, red hat man laughing, 8th Aerial Port passenger terminal, NHA hanger (210 Combat Aviation Battalion), Air Force War Museum then on to the USAF Base former main gate. Then with each of the following parts of the series we’ll move toward and into the central city area of Saigon and Cholon. Then travel to areas outside of Saigon and back to Tan Son Nhut Airport for departure from Vietnam.

Each of us lived in Saigon at different times during the years from the mid-1950’s to 1975. Because of the span of time we lived in Saigon, different parts of the series will mean more to each of us … but, they will all trigger memories and experiences of your time in Saigon.

Mimi, pass the “Lemon Nod” this way … Please 🙂

Enjoy …

LOL @ the guy in the red hat … Gee I wonder who he was laughing at … 🙂

As always please feel free to leave your Comments below and share the memories and experiences this brings back to you … about your time in Saigon.

Stay tuned for Part 4 in a few days 🙂
