January 27 - 28, 1971

We made 5 round trips from Long Thanh North to Bangkok carrying troops and equipment.  The runway at Long Thanh North was about half the length and half the width of Bien Hoa's, so it required a bit more concentration. 

On one flight in there I was quite high on final approach.  The tower controller noticed just how high we were and inquired, "Understand you are going around?"  Stacey the copilot replied, "Uh, stand by..."  but I made the landing OK.  Airplane humor.

We had a hot brake on another landing there.   As a precaution we had the tower call out a fire engine.   The tower controllers got pretty excited--maybe they'd never called out a fire engine before.
