The helicopter was filmed landing on the embassy building in Kabul.

As the United States continues its withdrawal from the Afghan capital, social media has been filled with images of helicopters evacuating individuals from the US Embassy in Kabul.

It is a familiar image to some.

In 1975, photographer Hulbert van S took a now-famous photograph of people rushing into a helicopter on the roof of a house in Saigon at the conclusion of the Vietnam War.

Analysts and US lawmakers – Republicans and Democrats – are comparing the so-called fall of Saigon and the Taliban’s takeover of Kabul.
