War Story:
I was the pilot in command of this aircraft's wingman on the day of the incident. The OH6 was on an armed reconnaissance mission flying at tree top level at approximately 40 kits. The aircraft blew up and crashed. I was approximately 600 ft above the OH6 looking straight at the aircraft at the time. To this day, I still have no idea what happened to cause the aircraft to blow up; however, we were in a very hostile location. I went down to check for survivors but saw none and received no enemy fire that I know of. I was flying an AH1G Cobra and it was difficult to hear enemy fire unless it was very close, so I could have been taking fire and not known it. If I can be of further assistance please let me know. There were three brave soldiers that died that day. From: Bill Rice
