Bay of Pigs Invasion
Airdrops From four C-54s and 2 C-46s had Failled
Playa Larga, Cuba
During the night of 17–18 April, the force at Red Beach came under repeated counter-attacks from the Cuban Army and militia. As casualties mounted and ammunition was used up, the brigadistas steadily gave way. Airdrops from four C-54s and 2 C-46s had only limited success in landing more ammunition.
