Tailwind Redux
The Vietnam Veteran A-1 Skyraider pilots of Operating Location Alpha Alpha (OLAA), along with their special guests, invite you to join them as they resume covering a mission known as “Operation Tailwind.” This informal presentation is a continuation of their much talked about 2016 reunion, held at the Tennessee Museum of Aviation.

In 1970, a Special Forces SOG team embarked on their deepest ever “over the fence” mission 40+ miles into Laos from the Vietnam border. This team of 16 Americans and 120 Montagnard mercenaries acted as a diversionary force for a large CIA operation some 40 miles further into Laos. The team was surrounded by enemy forces, encountering 72 plus hours of constant combat. Every American was wounded at least once. More than fifty percent of the force were casualties, with 3 Montagnards KIA. They escaped with the largest and most valuable collection of enemy intelligence documents ever recovered in the Vietnam War. This extremely successful Multi-Service mission was called Operation Tailwind.

Visitors will have the opportunity to hear from the men who fought and carried out this extraordinary mission.
