I shot this from the cockpit. I didn’t see any advantage in getting out.Comment from Sethi: “Kampomg Cham was very often besieged. There are some Navy convoys that stop but (not) very often, the airport/airbase was the only link to the rest of the country. Not much fuel for private cars.The Air Security troup paid a high price along the war. When Phom-Penh fell in 1975, the airbase commander and his deputy refused to surrender and continued the fight untill they ran out of ammunition.”There is no former Kampong Cham airbase personnal among the Veterans. I think no one survived but I still wait for a few comments.” – Bennet CrawfordKep, circa 1961 Marie-françoise Le Guen-châtel 11 Jan 74 : A Cambodian army soldier covers his ears as he crouches with companions behind a paddy dike while a recoilless rifle mounted atop an armored personnel carrier fires at nearby Khmer Rouge positions during fighting only five miles northwest of Phnom Penh.”AP Photo/Alan Rockoff.Khmer Airforce at Ponchentong.
