The next stop for the 390th Traveling Circus was just outside the MACV compound in Kontum.  We were separated from the forward base of the 48th and we had to fend for ourselves.  Normally we would go over to the MACV compound for food but we would have a cookout once in a while.

We had a visit from a Skycrane that needed some fuel.  Quite a change from our Hueys.
