(WCCO-TV) Two men, who tried to kill each other 40 years ago, met at the Minneapolis airport this afternoon.
Dan Cherry and New Yen Hong Me were fighter pilots in Vietnam, on opposite sides of the war. They engaged in a dog fight over Hanoi in April 1972.
Cherry blew the wing off Hong Me’s jet with a missile. Hong Me was able to eject, and the two met in Vietnam four years ago.
Hong Me is in Minnesota for the Air Expo this weekend at Flying Cloud airport.
