Roger Youngblood – Escape to U-Tapao

In the final days of the Vietnam War, a mass exodus of men and U.S.- supplied aircraft made their way out of South Vietnam to Thailand. It became clear that the North Vietnamese were going to claim the aircraft that had escaped. Plans were made to smuggle the High-Value Aircraft Including A -1E and H Skyraiders as soon as possible out of U-Tapao Air Base in Thailand. Roger Youngblood, presents the backstory of how he and Jack Drummond smuggled planes out of U-Tapao Thailand for General Harry Clay (Heinie) Aderholt.
