Snake Pilot: Flying the Cobra Attack Helicopter in Vietnam
Snake Pilot: Flying the Cobra Attack Helicopter in
Based on audiotapes he recorded during the war and sent home to his family, Randy Zahn’s Snake Pilot recounts his experiences flying AH-1 Cobra helicopters during the Vietnam War. First deployed in Vietnam in 1967 and loaded with a formidable arsenal of weaponry, the Cobra was the first helicopter designed from inception as an attack aircraft. It dramatically changed the nature of the war in Vietnam by offering the Army, for the first time, its own powerful and highly accurate weapons platform for close-air-support missions. Randy Zahn arrived in Vietnam shortly before the 1970 U.S. invasion of Cambodia, one of the most impressive demonstrations by the Cobra in the war. He describes his stunning transformation from a naive, middle-class teenager from southern California to a hardened killer during his tour in Vietnam. Unlike the pilots who flew the fast-moving strike jets, Zahn experienced the war “up close and personal,” witnessing the grisly effects of the Cobra’s firepower on enemy soldiers. The author does not glorify killing but rather explains in sharp relief the kaleidoscope of emotions associated with combat: fear, revenge, hate, remorse, pity, and even ecstasy. He captures many of the ironies and nuances inherent in Vietnam, especially during the final years of t...

Unsung Heroes Corgi Die Cast 1:48 Scale Vietnam Series II AH-1G Huey Cobra Attack Helicopter USMC
Unsung Heroes Corgi Die Cast 1:48 Scale Vietnam
Corgi felt it was very important to relate the real-life experiences of veterans who fought in Vietnam. In the true spirit of the "Unsung Heroes" this series honors those who went off to war, did their job quietly, and served their country. It is not meant to glorify any one person or in any way to diminish the contributions of thousands of other men and women who served in Vietnam, each with their own stories as "Unsung Heroes." It is simply meant to serve as some insight into what the war was like for one soldier. Corgi plans to continue this series by encouraging other Vietnam veterans to tell their stories. It is Corgi's hope that this will serve to commemorate those unsung heroes whose stories died with them on the battlefield, let those who made it back know in some small way that they are not forgotten and inform others who were never there what the war was really like.
