SamMcGowan Posted September 24, 2010 Share Posted September 24, 2010 I have discovered a number of films online from the 1964 Dragon Rouge Congo rescue mission and have posted links to them on the TCTAA site - www.troopcarrier.org. One film is of Captain Gonzales' crew arriving back at Leopoldville with the first survivors of the brutal massacre. Several Pope airplanes are in the films, and a number of crew members and maintenance personnel are visibile in some clips. Capt. Gonzales and his crew were flying 63-7795 that day. It is apparently used as a ground trainer somewhere now, possibly Little Rock. Whoever is using it needs to be aware that it is one of the most historic of all Herks. The Dragon Rouge operation has never been equaled and probably (hopefully) never will be. SEM Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
