Air Vietnam

Officially a commercial carrier with domestic and international routes. This airline began in 1951 and flew through the end of the war.   It often shared hanger space with CASI as well as an undefined commercial relationship.

Air VN crew were civilians and many were ex-military (VNAF retirees), some were Americans. Air VN flew a variety of aircraft including DC-3s, DC-4s and Boeing 727s.  It leased one C-46 from China Airlines. This aircraft had different colors and was flown by a Chinese crew. Air VN also flew Cessna 170's on small-town routes throughout Vietnam. Maintenance was done by CASI and Air VN with some heavy engine overhaul and other maintenance done in Hong Kong and Taiwan by the Air Asia Co., Ltd. and China Airlines.  Click here for a brief history of Air Vietnam.

Air Vietnam Constellation Model
I was in Bangkok right after the fall of Saigon and was walking down Pat Pong Road when i passed the office of Air Viet Nam. The South Vietnamese employees were In a panic to get all they wanted out. I went in and saw a made to scale model of the Caravelle with Air Viet Nam markings on it that had been given to Air Viet Nam by the French company that made the aircraft. I asked for it and they told me to take it.
