Joe Richardson | 497th Tactical Fighter Squadron, 8th Tactical Fighter Wing - Air Force

6:48   |   When Joe Richardson's squadron was working with some Navy pilots over the A Shau Valley, one of them made a mistake which caused some of their bombs to detonate prematurely. Two of his fellow pilots had to bail out. One of them was located fairly quickly but the fate of the other was unknown for a while.
