    w/o 17 at Opa Locka Airport, Florida midair collison with Bell 47G N2873B during landing descent in a takeoff climb. Both aircraft had been cleared by tower along parallel flight paths, but were not advised of each other. 5 fatalities (4 USCG) Coast Guard Air Station Miami
    I watched the acident very close to our(CG) helo pad. 1376 never saw the ascending Bell because they had nose up to decrease speed and and power in a retarded setting. Sad to loose our whole crew for NO REASON. BELL FLOWN BY FOREIGN STUDENT and Dade County Air controllers had too much overlapping traffic.
