Meet The Pilot and Survivor From One of the Largest Air Rescues in Vietnam

In August, Dave Richardson did a virtual tour to promote his book Vietnam Air Rescues. This book was created by a father to share an account of the time he spent in Vietnam. He discusses each of his rescues and shares plenty of details about every day life for him and other interesting tidbits about his time in Vietnam.

Vietnam Air Rescues by Dave Richardson Gives You a Chance to…

Eavesdrop—as a father recounts to his adult children his exploits as an Air Force
“Jolly Green” combat helicopter rescue pilot in Vietnam…

Be There—to see what it was really like…

Ride Along—and determine what you would have done when another man’s life was literally hanging in the balance…

Feel—what it meant to save a life…

Experience—heart pounding action in…Vietnam Air Rescues.

Join author to learn more about his life as a “Jolly Green” rescue pilot, picking up aircrew shot down in North Vietnam and Laos. This book is a real treasure with details of his 7 rescues of 9 men and over 30 anecdotes relating to his experiences. The book is profusely illustrated with more than 100 photos, maps and drawings. To order your copy and for more information, visit his website at www.vietnam-air-rescues.com.

Dave Richardson’s final rescue happened mere days before he was scheduled to return to the US. Little did he know that it would be one of the largest air rescues in Vietnam. The man he rescued has written a book about his experience during this 40 hour ordeal.

While reading The Rescue of Streetcar 304—A Navy Pilot’s Forty Hours on the Run in Laos, you might:

Cry… When Streetcar 304 describes a romantic and emotional farewell with wife and children prior to flying into combat over Laos.

Twinge in Fear… As Streetcar 304 is shot down following his second bomb run in the midst of massive enemy anti-aircraft fire.

Anguish… Along with Streetcar 304 as one rescue plane after another is knocked out of the sky by enemy gunfire and another pilot is also running for his life.

Marvel… At the non-stop action in the jungle as Streetcar encounters squad after squad of enemy troops in hot pursuit and then… lions, leopards and monkeys.

Stand up and Applaud… When Streetcar 304 is finally rescued in a scenario readers describe as “Better than any movie”.

Be in Awe… When you read the final epilogue about the story’s aftermath.

On 31 May 1968, Lt. Kenny Fields catapulted off USS America in his A-7 for his first combat mission. His target was in Laos, which at the time was “officially” off-limits for U.S. attacks. What the planners did not know was that Fields and his wingman were en route to a massive concentration of AAA gun sites amidst an entire North Vietnamese division. Fields—call sign Streetcar 304—was the first to roll in and destroyed the target with a direct hit. Three AAA guns began to fire, but, following his wingman, he rolled in again. This time many more AAA guns opened up and Fields was shot down. For more information, visit – www.kennywaynefields.com

Monday August 18th, author and publicist Nikki Leigh interviewed Dave Richardson about his book and his experiences in Vietnam. To listen or to download your own copy, click the link above.

Start with the Facts About The Girl Who Fell

How did you get interested in the topic that’s featured in your book?

Music is a big part of my life – I’ve played various instruments since childhood. Working with other musicians was a major inspiration. Loss of memory, along with other mental phenomena have interested me since I minored in psychology at college.

Tell us a bit about your background. What have you done in the past that relates to your book and that topic?

I’m glad to say I have no first-hand experience of memory loss! Aside from the musical influences, this is very much an imaginary tale and bears very little resemblance to my own life.

What advise would you give to someone who is interested in your topic?

Fantasy, music, mental chaos, mystery… if you like this sort of thing you could do a lot worse than read one of my books.

What do you see as the benefit to participating in groups and organizations? My first thought would be networking opportunities and the chance for personal and business growth. What are your reasons?

Most of my inspiration comes from people I meet. The various groups I am in have given me opportunities to connect with some truly amazing people.

Who is the ideal person to read your book? If each person that reads this was going to recommend your book to one person, what sort of person would they want to chose?

People who like fantasy but don’t want another epic adventure with an unpronounceable barbarian hero on a quest to find a magical sword and kill the ultimate evil. My fantasy work is NOT epic, it’s about strange and wonderful people encountering strange and wonderful things. And terrible things. Plots, mysteries, adventures and magic all on a very human scale.

What do you think ignites a person’s creativity?

For me, all of life is an interplay between what I experience and what I imagine. In Druidry, there’s a concept called ‘awen’ – a free flowing force of inspiration that you can just reach out and engage with.

What have you found to be the biggest stumbling block for people who want to start writing?

Having enough ideas. Plenty of people have ‘an idea for a book’. The trouble is, an idea will give you a short story. For a novel, you need dozens of good ideas that all mesh together into a coherent whole.

How would you suggest they can overcome that?

Either write short stories – which is a good way to develop your skills anyway, or wait, gather more ideas, do more research, plan more and then write.

What do you find is the biggest motivator for people to succeed? Is it money, security, desire for fame or something else?

I can’t speak for anyone else here, but for me its the desire to move and inspire others that keeps me writing.

Who is the “perfect” person to read your book?

My ideal reader for this one would be the lad who most inspired me, but he just doesn’t read all that much, sadly.
