Looks like Garry on the left and Wild Bill Henson on the right.
Who's that in the center?
Stacks of 463L pallets prepared for return to Tan Son Nhut or Bien Hoa.
Budop CIDG/SF Camp & Dirt Airstrip, III Corps. 1970
Army Chinook in the background, 10k Adverse Terrain forklift in
foreground. Note the "8th Aerial Port Mobility Team" painted on the 2k
rear weight, and the flare parachute tied to the cross bar above. These
would billow out behind the rig as it was moving along - just for fun...
On the 463L cargo pallets are boxes of ammunition and some emptied fuel
bladders - 2 on a pallet. We called them "Elephant Balls"
MOB "bunker" at Budop airstrip - 1970.
Across the strip was the relatively more secure Special Forces CIDG camp.
Dunno what the guys are looking at in the left foreground, but what - or who ever it was,it got everyone's attention.
Garry Arndt, Loadmaster. Vietnam. Blind Bat Mission
Below is the entire C-130 Blind Bat Crew that Garry flew with over
the Ho Chi Minh Trail, illuminating targets for our guys to hit.
