18nov82 US NAS Dallas / Hensley Field accident w/o HMH-777 /MM-405 I crashed in this helo. I was the crewchief HMH-777

notes 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.
