|MM-405||ANAS Dallas / Hensley Field|| accident w/o crashed in this helo. I was the crewchief HML-767 |
Nov 18, 1982 was the fourth anniversary of the Jones town massacre.
The weather was not too good so we filed a special VFR flight plan because our wingman
was single piloted. He had a crew chief in the left seat. We were a flight of two and were
on a routine cross country RON. We left Dallas TX for NAS NOLA which is where we were out of.
In Morgan City LA we had a wire strike. The resulting accident killed my pilot and injured
my co pilot and myself.
|HML-767 . This helo was assigned to MARTD New Orleans, LA|
