US Air Force 64-15484 : This was not a resupply mission. It was a combat training mission while standing strip alert at Duc Lap, RVN, with 4 gunships, 5th gun, and 3 VNAF H-34B slicks, supporting five LRRP teams in Cambodia. Two gunships and two slicks went across the line to practice under fire coordination. While coming over a low ridge, the H-34 Slick turned left instead of right (directions by overhead USAF FAC in 0-2). When Jackie came over the ridge, he had to make a very sharp turn to avoid headon collision, and went into the trees. I KNOW, because I was the copilot in 5th gun, with Lou Glass being the aircraft commander. We picked up the two survivors of 64-1584 via long line ropes.
