I was ridding in the jump seat

notes On June 23 1967 I was ridding in the jump seat , when we were trying to lift out a dozer, and a mishap took place, during emergency shutdown. Our new company co applied the main rotor brake without apu running. We had no wheel brakes, and we spun around and went down a hill and aircraft was destroyed. If I ever see that sob I will promptly kick his butt. A perfectly fine aircraft was destroyed for no good reason. Am ok today , but spent 3 mos in hospital. Along with the other pilot who was one of the finest persons on the earth.
