Think we can still fly it? It just needs a little maintenance....   4th Aviation Aircraft (A/C) used ath airstrip at Artillery Hill, Pleiku to practice running landings.  One of the local dogs, adopted by the crews, would chase helicopters just like chasing a car.  The dog would run out to the A/C   until the rotorwash blew him off the runway.  This picture catches the dog just as he is being blown back.
