(a gathering place for extraordinary birdmen)

 

This site is provided as a communication and information tool for a once Top Secret, very small and special group of U.S.A.F. Viet Nam Veterans.  While serving in Viet Nam, these young men also flew hundreds of missions in support of the Cambodian Army during that war.

                                 

These Rustic pilots flew mostly under the cover of darkness, in combat, over Cambodia.

Their mission was Forward Air Control, providing air support to ground troops.

                       The night crews were 2 pilots.                       

                          Their call sign was “Rustic”.                        

                      Their mission was Top Secret.                      

                  Their aircraft was the Cessna O-2A.                 

         Their average mission duration was 4.5 hours.
