Join us for a special Veteran's Day Aviation Adventures Program Friday, November 13, 2009 at 7:00 p.m.
"Secret and Dangerous - Night of the Son Tay P.O.W. Raid" Presented by Bill Guenon, author, lecturer and Air Commando Pilot
Bill Guenon has spent the majority of his aviation career covering many facets of the transportation industry for both military and civil applications on a global basis. He has served in the U.S. Air Force as a command pilot, senior air traffic controller, and team leader for the USAF ATC analysis program. A career highlight was Bill's participation in the 1970 Son Tay P.O.W. Raid which is detailed in the book "Secret and Dangerous - Night of Son Tay P.O.W. Raid," a thrilling eyewitness account of the secret humanitarian mission. During his Aviation Adventures presentation, Bill will share his experience as one of the air commando pilots who flew the amazing 'C-130' aircraft on the edge of a stall, at night, while leading six helicopters in close formation deep into North Vietnam for a daring rescue attempt of POWs being held in the shadows of Hanoi.
