1981-07Jul81 as EG-10/HMM-263 flipped over on the flight deck while turning and burning. Salt water was poured on it and the aircraft was not taken to Cherry Point until HMM-263 returned to CONUS in Nov81. The aircraft was written off due to corrosion HMM-263
Greg Boyle was the Crew Chief. The Navy Director (Yellow Shirt) was knocked off the deck most likely by a disintegrated rotor blade. I don't believe his body was recovered.
