notes This chopper crashed on LZ in a rice patty in the Arizona area Southwest from Da Nang on Dec 7, 1969 late in the afternoon. With three personnel, all injured, they had a child being medevac'd that was tossed out the back when the vehicle flipped over nose first. This helo was providing us with ammo and food resupplies. It was like the fourth of July fireworks when everything began exploding. The battalion commander and myself rescued the crew
