This is Dong Ha airfield. Built in 1966 to
provide another suppy line for the 3rd Marine Division, it replaced the
original Dong Ha air strip and is designed to handle C 141s, C 130s and
C 5s. It is the home of the 1st BDE 5th DIV Rotary Wing Detachment and the
USAF Observation Detachment. This unit flies the OV 10 as seen here and
provides control of close air support for the BDE.
