Aircraft in Vietnam

Landing at Plateau Gi

This picture, taken out my left side window as we departed the airfield, shows another C-7 just landing.  The field was called Plateau Gi and was one of my favorites because the surrounding terrain reminded me a lot of my native New England.  Visible above the runway at the right is the Montagnard Special Forces camp we were supporting.   Triangular in shape and accessible only by one safe path, it was completely surrounded by a lovely green field heavily sown with mines.
