Dustoff in Action

Various photos of Dustoff crews in action throughout Vietnam.

This Dustoff mission occurred in 1967 near Dak To. Often the Dustoff pilots weren’t able to land, but hovered over rough terrain while the wounded where loaded aboard.
This Dustoff mission occurred in 1966 in support of the 1st Infantry Division. The Huey in this photograph is a D model.
This photo and the next one were taken from a Chinook while an Eagle Dustoff ship performed a rescue mission over terrain that would not allow landing.

After the war, back in the States, Dustoff continued its lifesaving mission with the M.A.S.T. (Military Assistance to Safety and Traffic) program.
