Big patched area on LH aft side where aircraft was struck by an externaled blade can that got away from my observer during his cherry hop. There were 2 cans an they were not secured properly. They turned into an x shape in flight then swung up and left wrapping the pendant around the LH main mount then swinging up into the aircraft. I was not a happy crewchief when my plane landed. Crew chief wanted to pickle it before it got ugly and pilot over rode him.
