    On March 10, 1970, a U.S. Marine Corps CH-46D helicopter (#153987) from Marine Medium Helicopter Squadron 164 (HMM 164) suffered a rotor failure shortly after takeoff and crashed, resulting in the deaths of four Marine passengers. The aircraft was on a routine resupply mission. The helicopter lifted off from Camp Perdue (Hill 327) in Quang Nam Province, RVN, with an external net load and started traveling forward when its main rotors began to come apart. The aircraft crashed outside of the perimeter of the camp, a couple hundred yards from the helipad. A fire quickly erupted which caused ammunition and explosives to begin cooking off. The crew were able to escape the flaming wreckage, however, four passengers aboard perished in the inferno. They were PFC Theodore L. Cadenhead, SGT Larry W. Duke, LCPL Larry A. Struss, and PFC Marcelino Vargas Jr. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and popasmoke.com]
