    I was the crew chief on her final flight . We crashed on approach and were almost waved off and back over the water . I'm sure none of us woulde have survived . the fwd yellow blade had a crack in the D spar and went UA ! A WM Major and Ltcmdr were both killed by blade strikes as the blades and rotor heads went out of phase and entered the AC Myself and four others survived . we are I believe the only survivors of an inflight blade loss . Semper Fi
    Would like to find out more about this helicopter final flight. My aunt was the Woman Marine Major killed in the crash
