LC: Vietnam War, 1961-1975
Hydrofoil patrol gunboats Flagstaff (PGH-2) and Tucumcari (PGH-1) tied up in the fall of 1969 near the YFNB that served as headquarters for Coastal Division 12 in Da Nang. The radar site atop Monkey Mountain can be seen in the background. The hydrofoils proved too complex for the Viet Nam combat operations and were shipped back to the states in late winter.
