I remember this crash

notes I remember this crash as I was around 7 years old at the time. Playing outside with my sister and a friend we all heard a loud noise. As we turned around we saw the tailrotor of the UH-1 disengaged and it began to descend quickly and then we saw smoke. It had crashed into the local Piggly Wiggly. We had helicopter parts in our yard. I remember what I thought were dozens of aircraft coming to the scene. My father was stationed at Camp Lejeune during this time. I think this may have had an impact on me because when I was old enough I joined the US Army and became a mechanic on the UH-1. Then I went off to Fort Rucker for flight school.
