The famous photo of the last US helicopter removing American personnel and supporters from Saigon ahead of the communist takeover of the city in 1975. The popular idea that the evacuations took place from the compound of the US Embassy is erroneous – the building shown in the picture was actually the CIA’s ‘Pittman Apartments’ some distance away.
