Description

A Bell Iroquois UH-1H helicopter gunship of 9 Squadron RAAF in flight near the Nui Dinh hills, a heavily contested battle field for the 1st Australian Task Force (1ATF) during its Vietnam deployment. Several clearings have been cut into the jungle and the remnants of trees are visible on the ground. This clearance was achieved through bulldozers and by burn-offs.
