of our comrades in arms, our fierce aircraft, our deluxe
accommodations, our carefully landscaped flightline, our mama
san Hue, and our beloved jeep, Elinor.
If you would like larger versions of any of the
photos on this site, drop me a line and I can scan them in at much
higher resolutions and send them to you. These are all scanned directly
from my 1970 35mm slides. The full size versions have excellent detail.
I took about 300 slides in Vietnam. I have posted about a quarter of
them concentrating on photos with Evans staff in them. I have many more
of the countryside, Hue, the walled city, Danang, Ubon Thailand, and
other Evans shots. If you want me to post any of those let me know from
the Feedback link.
Below are the captions for the photos submitted by
Dutch Helms. Sorry I can't post them with the photos but the
photo pages are built dynamically by another piece of software.
They start on Photo page 5. They are the pictures which begin
with 5_xx where xx matches the number next to the caption below.
