Stories of Sacrifice & Dedication

Stories of Sacrifice & Dedication: Civilian Air Transport, Air America, and the CIA

On 2 June, 2011, the CIA, in partnership with the National Museum of the United States Air Force, presented a symposium recognizing the sacrifice and dedication of Civil Air Transport (CAT) and Air America (AAm). These CIA air proprietary companies routinely suppilied and supported covert capabilities for the US military, and conducted photo reconnaissance in east and southeast Asia from the end of World War II through the Vietnam conflict.  This event was held to highlight the public release of about 900 recently declassiied documents from CAT and AAm corporate files and CIA holdings spanning 1946 to 1978.
