View from UH-1 helicopter flying over Camp Holloway in Vietnam highlands, during period U.S. troops are commencing their incursion into Cambodia, during the Vietnam War. Rough dirt paths and landing areas have been carved out of the earth and scrub brush landscape. Half a dozen UH-1s are parked on the site, as well as trucks and other vehicles. A huge section of the site is barren, except for a white wind sock. View from the ground of a UH-1 coming in to land. It sets down on a ramp of marsden matting, aka pierced steel planking (PSP), as a CH-47 chopper takes off in the background. Camera is photographing from another UH-1 that takes off, still focusing on the one that just arrived. A C-130 aircraft is on the runway in the background. The departing camera-helicopter shows troops and equipment on the bare earth below. Scene shifts to aerial views of sky, clouds, and mountainous terrain. Shifting to view of ground, another advance base is seen below. Another UH-1 is seen in the sky.The camera-helicopter passes over a dirt field where a low flying formation of helicopters is raising huge dust clouds. In the midst of this site there is a long hard surface (PSP) runway, that the camera-helicopter flies along, at altitude.Troops and equipment plus more helicopters are in the dirt areas beside the hard runway.
