RAAF Supplies Fire Support Base Coral [AWM F02729 Film courtesy of the Australian War Memorial] silent, 10.9 MB

This film shows a RAAF helicopter resupplying Fire Support Base Coral on 30 May 1968. As the helicopter flies into and out of the base viewers can see something of how Coral appeared at the height of the fighting in the area. The helicopter's second pilot, sporting a full beard, appears to be a member of the Royal Australian Navy Helicopter Flight Vietnam.
