  • Dc-8-63 lands at marble mountain.

    I had read about this happening on the Popasmoke web site. I have to say that it's pretty impressive to see that aircraft taking off.
    Hope it comes thru.

    Subject: Seaboard World DC-8-63_Video..scary landing and takeoff

    The film doesn't mention the aftermath of the many tents blown over during the takeoff!

    Great actual footage with narration of a Seaboard World DC-8-63 that landed at the wrong airport in Vietnam

    in 1969. (8 miles from DaNang..the intended airport). Airport only had a 3300 ft runway. Watch how after defueliing,

    and removing all the seats, the aircraft was able to take-off in 2800 ft for the intended destination.
