The Hunter details are distinctly mind-boggling - I was operating in a related capacity at the time and knew noithing about it!
The Pilatus activity is much less surprising - they were part of an extraordinary mix of aircraft operated by, or on behalf of the CIA in the region. They ranged through Helio Courier, Dornier 27 and 28, C46 and 47, C123s, Ventura, Beech 18 various Helos and even Twin Pin. The majority operated under the Air America 'label' but the Ventura appeared with a logo of 'The Minnesota Mining and Dam Construction Co' ... or something similar! Odd mix, odd times!
