Sunset over Luscombe Field Sunset over Luscombe Field  

 
Luscombe Field was the airstrip built and used by the 1st Australian Task Force to ferry men and supplies in and out. It was also used as a pad for heliborne operations.
The Nui Dinh Hills are in the background. These hills have been a VC stronghold since the end of WW2. First the Viet Minh against French occupation, then the Viet Cong.
