Ban Me Thuot East Field

There were two airfields at Ban Me Thuot, the 2,000' dirt runway on the edge of town where Pyramid and the 155th AHC were located, and Ban Me Thuot East Field.  BMTE was about 5 or 6 miles east of town and had a paved runway (I'm guessing 4 to 5 thousand feet long).  It actually had a terminal (seen behind the Army Caribou in the picture below.
