Description: Symposium held at the University of Texas at Dallas on April 18, 2009; This brochure includes symposium overview, Air America timeline and facts, gratitude letters, after-action reports, and articles including Dr. Larry D. Sall’s "The crash of Civil Air Transport flight B-908"."Through all the years of U.S. involvement in Southeast Asia, Air America pilots and their support personnel accepted the grave danger and extreme flying challenges with great alacrity. Called upon one last time in the final days before the collapse of the South Vietnamese government, Air America personnel braved the Saigon skyline to carry thousands of evacuees to the safety of nearby countries and U.S. ships in the South China Sea. They conducted themselves in the finest tradition of their motto "Anything, Anytime, Anywhere, Professionally." In praise of their efforts, U.S. Air Force investigators concluded "Only God knows the numbers of sorties which Air America flew in the final month in Vietnam. [We]... estimate that over 1,000 were flown, perhaps many more.""--Symposium overview.
