    Seeking training film shot by father

    Edward Davis Newbie

      Hello,

       

      My Dad was an Air Force photographer back at Udorn Air Force base in Thailand, back in 1968. While he was there, he shot training films, crew interviews, and footage of the planes. I would love to try and track this down to see. I don't know where to start. Any info would be appreciated.

       

      Thanks,

      Ed Davis Jr.
