US NAS Patuxent River accident ( 24-jun-77 )
SH-2 Helicopter was assigned to VX-1 at NAS Patuxent River, MD and crashed shortly after take off on base killing all 3 aboard. The pilots were LT. Howdershell, LT Craiton and Aircrewman AT 2 James Emery all family men with children. They were all great friends and I still think of them all the time some 40 years later..
