The armory was in the rear. Photo taken just prior to moving to the new bldg inside the compound.

Đà Nàng flight line - I think at the very far end is the Marine area, but I'm not positive.

Đà Nàng flight line.

U.S. Army Caribou on Đà Nàng flight line. I notice the tarmac - my memory of the PSP dirt/iron link runway, I
think, is the Marine helicopter area. I remember the tarmac on the flight line, so the runways must have been concrete.

The Hu?ys and Mowhawks showed up in Đà Nàng in late 1963; the view from the C123 (black & white) is just out of Đà Nàng.
