US HSL-35 1986-1989 AD2 Talley HSL-35 Det 7,March 1988 I was a Lead Mechanic on A/C 35 Buno 161910 , on deployment on the USS Bagley FF-1086 to the Persian gulf. We lost our helicopter due to transmission failure, all aircrew and pilots survived. In a couple weeks we prepared for a New Helicopter Flown from North Island to Bahrain, it was so cool , 10 days later we headed for the persian gulf with our battle group USS Enterprise CVN -65 in Operation Praying Mantis, Never thought I would see combat action... It was a great experience working together with a great team.

136270
44070 136270 while on final duding an Air Mobile (Exercise BRAVE LION) operation in Norway, the a/c struck a wire and crashed. The initial wire contact was in the rotor mast area causing an immediate loss of control. The WSPS had not engaged the war due the shallow closing angle. Both crew members survived the crash and airframe suffered Cat “B” damage. Ref: T Leversedge, Kestrel Publications, internet.
