    NOTE: [conflicting info] on 27Nov67, UH-46A 152495 was NOT recovered, at blade stop, blade cut fuselage, helo sunk. UDT divers tried to locate the next day, current swept them to sea, were resuced...
    1996/1997 still in active service on USS Rainier (AOE-7) tiger Cruise. I believed at the time was HC-11 Det 2 run by AT1 Patricia Kelly... Later AVCM

    The information about the loss of 152495 is wrong. At the time (27nov67) this helicopter was with HC-3. The crash relates to 152490. HC-3
