IS Keflavik accident ( 11-jul-69 )
Irving Martin Goldrat was a member of a 3 man crew, together with the pilot and co-pilot. They were stationed at Naval Air Station Keflavik, Iceland. They were on a search and rescue mission to recover the crew and contents of a C-47 downed plane (mail, I think). The helicopter crashed in a field on a farm. The Navy claimed that the crash was caused by winds in the mountains. A friend told me that he had sent him living letters (cassette tapes) talking about the faulty transmissions they were dealing with in the helicopter(s).
