U.S Air Force and Navy Jets put down a line of defensive fire as they engage in the protection of a C-130 transport preparing for departure from the Marine base at Khe Sanh. Enemy forces were spotted moving along a mountainside in full view of the base just after the C-130 landed a load of ammunition. Air strikes were called in and the enemy's apparent plan to destroy the aircraft and its cargo was foiled U.S. Air Force photo.
