Accident Summary of U.S. Marine Corps helicopter UH-34D tail number 150212

Recounted by Terry M. Curtis, pilot of a CH-46, first aircraft on scene: I was flying north from Hill 55 when I noticed two H-34's turning on the ground in front of us just south of Hill 10. I watched them as we flew overhead to make sure they did not take off underneath us. As soon as we cleared them to the north, I switched to DASC to report mission complete. DASC asked me if I had seen a midair that was just reported near my position. I said I had not and turned the aircraft back toward the south. I saw the two columns of smoke and headed toward the area of the mishap. Marines from the ground unit had already rushed to the area but could do nothing due to the intense heat from the burning magnesium. We only found one body. No survivors. The FAC with a ground unit, an H-34 pilot from that squadron, knew all the pilots and crew. They had stopped to say 'hi.” He stated, through tears, that as they took off Dash Two ran up underneath lead and, raising the nose, cut off the tail rotor of lead. Lead nose-dived, then pitched up before impact, shuddered and exploded. Dash two burst into flame in the air and the wreckage fell to earth. [Taken from vhpa.org]
