'An Air America C-123 delivering supplies and picking up Laotian troops at Long Tieng.' This was a 'secret city of 40,000' built by the Americans in a previously almost unhabited valley. Still without jet pods here, this Provider was converted to C-123K standard in the spring of 1969 and returned to USAF service as 54-671. To Laotian air force in 1972, to Thai air force in 1975. According to Joe Baugher, 'now at Titusville.' A C-123 wreck marked 671 was used for a crash scene in the movie Air America in 1990. Photo by: Robert L Wofford / University of Wisconsin

This Swiss-built Porter was delivered to the Swiss air force as V-611 in 1962. After an engine malfunction at the Tschierva Glacier in 1963 it was disassembled, but a helicopter dropped its wing in a crevice. The glacier released it in 2015! Through Foshing Airlines in Taiwan, the rebuilt aircraft was delivered to Air America in 1966, fitted with a Garrett turboprop. It is seen flying near the LS-36 airstrip at Na Khang in Laos. It crashed in 1973. Photo by: Ernest Kuhn / University of Wisconsin
