This one was taken when he first started his flying career
as an A-1 pilot (2nd Lt.)
Very few photos of Toan Nuc Nguyen exist due to the fact
that they were left in Saigon during the North Vietnamese
take over. Those that do survive show him during his early
Air Force career. Like many other South Vietnamese at the
time the family, Toan's wife and 3 years old child, Thang,
left South Vietnam to escape the North Vietnamese forces.
At some point in his career during the conflict Toan
ejected from a VNAF Northrop F-5A.
If anyone one can provide details of this ejection please
Thang Nguyen would like to hear from anyone who remembers
Toan and can fill in details of his life and VNAF days. He
can be reached at
firstname.lastname@example.org or via this web site.
