Col Victor Vizcarra Fighter Pilot Vietnam - Author

Post by caappy » Wed Apr 17, 2019 1:36 pm

Col. (Ret.) Vic Vizcarra, a 24 year Air Force veteran, was commissioned through the ROTC program upon graduation from Loyola University of Los Angeles in 1960. A high ranking in his pilot training class allowed him to choose the F-100 from the list of available assignments. After completing F-100 training, he was assigned to the 31st TFW, 309th TFS at Homestead AFB, FL where he flew the “Hun” for 16 months.

In 1963, he transitioned to the F-105 and served in Japan from where he participated in three deployments to Southeast Asia and flew 59 combat missions in the F-105D. During his third deployment, he was forced to eject from his disabled F-105D over North Vietnam and spent two hours on the ground evading capture before being rescued by a U.S. Navy helicopter.

He later returned to fly 120 combat missions in the F-100D/F with the 35th TFW, 352nd Tactical Fighter Squadron, at Phan Rang AB, Republic of Vietnam. In addition to the F-100 and F-105, Col. Vizcarra flew the F-5E and F-4E in follow-on assignments. Promoted to Colonel in 1981, he served as the 35th TFW Deputy Commander of Maintenance in his final assignment.

Vizcarra is the author of 2 books; HUN PILOT: A PILOT’S ACCOUNT OF THE FIRST USAF SUPERSONIC FIGHTER and “Thud Pilot: A Pilot’s Account of Early F-105 Combat in Vietnam”.

Sent him 2 photos on 27 Mar and got them back signed on 17 Apr.
