Final Mission of MAJ Boyd E. Morrow

On October 13, 1967, a U.S. Army helicopter UH-1H (tail number 66-16125) from the 188th Assault Helicopter Company “Black Widows” crashed at Dau Tieng in Binh Duong Province, RVN, after an engine failure. Two crewmen were killed, pilot MAJ Boyd E. Morrow and crew chief SP4 Jimmie W. Green. They were conducting a test flight in pre-dawn darkness after an engine repair. Green was operating an engine analyzer when the engine quit at low altitude. Morrow attempted to flare the aircraft as it went into a rice paddy north of Cu Chi near a rubber plantation, impacting right side down. The helicopter began to break apart, rolled, caught fire, and came to rest inverted about 500 feet from the point of initial contact. Morrow was evacuated to the 12th Evacuation Hospital at Cu Chi and expired from internal injuries. Green suffered fatal head injuries in the crash. He was posthumously promoted to Sergeant.
