History in Platoon: The Location

3 05 2008

I found the location of the Firebase Burt: Suoi Cut. This was really hard, even if OS actually spells the name in the commentary, but I’m not necessarily good with decoding english spelling. Plus, I think OS spells it wrong as Suoi Kut. Google Earth shows the location, and it is near the famous Cu Chi tunnel system, so I think it’s the right place.

(BTW: When I don’t have anything better to do, I go to Google Earth and look at the Luzon island, in hope I will find the filming location with the church. Sadly the most of that area is still shown with a quite poor quality.)
