    Sikorsky S-61 H-3 Accidents

    1974 ch-3e 61-651 US 69-5807 : USAF; conv HH-3E; w/o 06dec74 Portage Pass Anchorage, Alaska. Pilot killed
    1974 hss-2 61-012 US 148034 : I was with RVAH-13, Reconnaissance Attack Squadron Thirteen (Heavy) "Bats", flying RA-5C Vigilante ... and as I remember it, I was coming onto the flight deck to install a component into the jet, and I looked up and behind me as the HC was coming to land, and then noticed the SAM heading for the destroyer and I said 'oh shit' several times. The HC seemed to go full throttle and lifted and the SAM caught onto the heat signature from the HC and went directly into her and she exploded. I dove into the catwalk and saw the HC nearing the water below and it exploded again. I then picked up the tossed equipment and continued to the vigilante to install it. I was numb and in shock from the incident ... and am still dealing with it to this day ...
    1974 hss-2 61-138 US 149721 : Off USS Saratoga, an S-2 Tracker saw lights in the water and radioed in. Pilots had gotten vertigo, in a sonar hover, black night overcast, and no horizon. Free streamed the sonar and reach 500’ before low air speed and weather conditions caused lose of control. Aircraft crashed and sank, all 4 crew exited under water.
