First reunion

The "Above & Beyond" department in our April/May issue chronicles the search by a retired Air Force Brigadier General for the Vietnamese pilot he shot down in 1972. After an emotional reunion, Dan Cherry arranged for Hong My and his son to come to the United States, where the two pilots will present their story at the Sun 'n' Fun fly-in in Lakeland, Florida, on April 23-26, and at the National Air and Space Museum on April 28. See the video clip of Hong My's happy arrival last night.
