US NAS Patuxent River accident ( 24-jun-77 )
SH-2F Helicopter /JA-31 was assigned to VX-1 at NAS Patuxent River, MD and crashed on its final approach to the base killing all 3 aboard. The pilot was LT. Steven Howdershell, Copilot LT Richard Creighton and Air Crewman AW 2 Robert Emery. They were all great friends and I still think of them some 40 years later.
