Now-Col. (ret.) Westbrook and his family was able to tour the aircraft he flew during the Son Tay Raid, HC-130P #0991. They were able to meet with Col. Robert Masaitis, 27th Special Operations Wing commander, and other Cannon Airmen to commemorate the anniversary. The Son Tay Raid was a mission to rescue POWs in Vietnam, and has stood as a prime example of solid mission execution, despite the POWs having been moved beforehand.
