DescriptionLanded helicopter being 're-supplied' by five soldiers; another helicopter coming in to land at the Bien Hoa air base in Vietnam. The artist has noted that this was not painted on the spot. The dust would have made it impractical to do this. Instead it was a composite picture created from his imagination.
