PIC TAKEN FROM AIRLINER TAKING ME ON R&RComment by: John Hackworth on May 22, 2006 09:13 PM This is really a view of the Navy base at the foot of Monkey Mntn...Comment by: George Vogel on Sep 12, 2009 12:05 PM This look like Deep Water Piers where I worked from Sept. 68 to Nov. 69. The 2 piers on the left were regular piers and the third one on the right was a floating pier. Directly behind them is the staging area.Comment by: Wayne Lovercheck on Sep 25, 2009 01:34 PM The third pier (on the right) is a DeLong pier, which is in effect a very large pier shaped barge with support columns that engage the bottom and support the pier at a useful height. It was towed to Danang, and then raised and supported in position by the columns. It left with the navy.
