Awesome, Norman! Congrats to you and to your buyer!
Norman Johnson replied:
I would like to thank the buyer from Silverhill, AL very much for their purchase. I am glad that you like my work.
I was at Dak To during the Battle of DakTo in 1967. These were flown by the Australians into Ben Het Special Forces "A Team" camp while I was there and the only resupply aircraft that would fly in because of ground fire. Brave guys those Auggies. Nice image Norman. I was a crane and dozer operator(15th Engineers LE) attached to the 299th Combat Engineers and later to the Special Forces "A Team" at Ben Het. I was 100 yds away from the C-130's that were attacked there and one was destroyed that I buried underground the next day. Small world! WELCOME HOME WARRIOR BUDDY.....
I only visited the main camp at the base of the mountain and was there only one day. I took the last Chinook out just as they started to walk the mortars toward the airfield. glad to see you got back OK.
very very cool.

My AF ROTC Commander used to fly C-7A Caribou in Vietnam before becoming a "famous" KC-135 Stratotanker pilot. l/f, ~Jeff at JSJ Photography
I was an army writer/photographer in Vietnam so I mostly rode Heuys or Chinooks with the ocassional c-130 thrown in.
I think that is a C-7A “Caribou” vice a C-123 "Provider" but in any case--an ugly plane with great capabilities back in the day. ~Jeff at JSJ Photography
You know, I think you're right. It probably is a C-7A Caribou now that I think about it. The reason I thought it was a C-123 was that between them and the C-130 \, that was about all the fixed wing aircraft they flew out of this forward base.
Means a lot to me ! I Am a Big Fan of History and aviation !
Thank you so much Norman .
thank you, Goszcz.
