Interesting photo captioned. "an unmarked U-10 66-14337 somewhere in southeast Asia July 1968"

Note no nationality marking only the s/n on the tail and a red fin cap also interesting is the replacement of gear leg fairings and the polished aluminum. All of the Air America and miliary Helios are unpolished aluminum with gear leg fairings removed.

Other Helios with the 56th Air commando wing were loaned to Air Asia for clandestine missions and more than likely this one was also. Especially since it has no nationality marks.

 It took some hunting to double check but it was with the 56th during July of 1968 the History paragraph above should read as follows; 04/67 (US Pacific Air Forces Command), 56th Air Commando Wing, 606th ACS, Nakhon Phanom Royal Thai AFB, Thailand, pictures show it with all nationality marks removed probably loaned to Air Asia (CIA) for clandestine work - Combat Support Unit status until 12/69

I will open the photo above as #1

For a change someone sent me a photo, but the real change would be if someone else posted something.

I will open it as #2 in the photo queue above.
