Gia Nghia From The Air

Another generous donation from Dave Cooley, LtCol, USAF (Ret), this picture is of the airfield at Gia Nghia taken from an O-2.  The name "airfield" is a misnomer here, because Gia Nghia's runway was formed by leveling the top of a small mountain.  Although it is not obvious from this photo, taken almost directly overhead, both ends of the runway dropped away steeply.  This field was prime territory for the C-7A Caribou, but a little dicey for the O-2.
