Final Mission of AZ3 Scott F. Moore Jr.Posted on 1/13/17 - by firstname.lastname@example.orgAZ3 Scott F. Moore Jr. was as aviation maintenance administration man assigned to Helicopter Combat Support (HC) 7, Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 14, USS Constellation (CVA-64), Task Force 77, 7th Fleet. He worked in the administration office at the main base of HC-7. AZ3 Moore desired to see what the HC-7 “Seadevils” crews did while on detachment. His request to participate in one of the flights was granted. On February 20, 1970, Moore was aboard a USN SH-3A (#149908) "Big Mother" helicopter flown from the carrier in the Gulf of Tonkin to Da Nang to pick up several persons. When the helicopter returned alongside the USS Constellation, it was held off deck while flight operations were in progress. The helicopter had eleven persons aboard. While holding a hover, the aircraft’s intermediate gear box broke. The helicopter entered into an uncontrolled spin and descended into the sea. There it sat upright a few seconds before rolling inverted, later sinking after approximately eight minutes in the water. Two-thousand pounds of unsecured cargo and bundles of mail on the aircraft made egressing difficult as it blocked escape routes. The crew of the helicopter searched the aircraft as it was sinking. One passenger suffered water inhalation and was pulled from the water unconscious. He was administered mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and cardiac massage and was revived by the crew. Moore was not found and presumed killed in the accident. His remains were never located. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and pownetwork.org]MORE

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.
May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.
