When we hit water we were on our side for several seconds, deployed the airbags, but the helo sank fast. All four crew were safe, a destroyer picked us up and we were returned to the carrier by another UH-2C. Our flight crew consisted of Lt Bill Bentley, co-pilot LTJG John Lovell, myself (AN Dave Wiczek) and ADJ-2 Jerry Vanlandingham who sustained injuries of a broken collar bone and a broken arm. a/c sank to the bottom of the Tonkin Gulf and to my knowledge was never seen again
