174th Assault
Helicopter Company


Lane Army Heliport

This is Lane Army Heliport (AHP) in the Phu Ti Valley, about 8 miles northwest of the coastal city of Qui Nhon. The road in the center is the dividing line between company areas. On the left is the 161st AHC area, on the right is the 174th AHC area. The long structure to the right of the road is a 300-foot hootch that we constructed ourselves, plus other amenities that can be seen. This picture was taken from the main gate. Lane was the first home of the 174th after we unloaded from the ships in the Qui Nhon harbor. (Photo and caption by Ted Saunders, Lane AHP, 1966)
