Views from a helicopter manned by a South Vietnamese crew. Smoke is rising from strikes against Viet Cong targets below. U.S. Lieutenant Colonel Thomas L. Stanford, advisor to the 2nd ARVN (Army of Vietnam) Ranger Group, in the Kontum area, is seen in the helicopter along with his Vietnamese counterpart. (This is during the "Vietnamization" phase of the Vietnam War.) Stanford is the red-headed U.S. officer wearing glasses. He and his Vietnamese counterpart are observing air strikes they requested on enemy positions. The explosions and black smoke are from the bombs being dropped. A vietnamese gunner aboard the helicopter fires a machine gun at ground target. A U.S. Army Bell UH-1D Iroquois or 'Huey' helicopter takes off from a paved road.
