On April 1, 1965, two 8th Bombardment Squadron B-57s are led into the area of Tchepone by a “Blind Bat” C-130 flare ship for the first night mission into Laos. A Marine EF-10B Douglas “Sky Knight” from VMCJ-1 brings up the rear to jam radar-controlled anti-aircraft systems and to detect missile sites preparing to launch as they continued north to the Mu Gia Pass on the North Vietnam/Laos border. The primary mission of the this unusual multi-service group was the destruction of truck convoys as they drove down the Ho Chi Minh Trail that fed the enemy to the south. - Oil painting by Keith Ferris
