air traffic in and out of Nui Dat

Without the air traffic arriving and departing from luscombe Airfield with troops and logistics, the Task Force would have been isolated with the exception of Route 2, a road link from Nui Dat to Vung Tau. A 'Chinook' can be seen landing at the Task Force base. The mountain ranges of the Nui Dinh and the Nui Thi Vai's in the background were VC strongholds. Unfortunately the clearance of the mountains caused many casualties to the Australians.
