Crash Information on U.S. Marine Corps helicopter UH-34D tail number 148785

From HMM-363 Squadron Chronology January 11, 1967: Two Millpoint aircraft were proceeding to Quang Ngai Airfield to stand night medevac. YZ-74 had to make a passenger pickup at the Admin Pad before continuing to Quang Ngai. The section leader radioed his wingman in YZ-76 to orbit over the beach at Chu Lai to wait for YZ-74. While the lead aircraft was on the Admin Pad a radio transmission was received from YZ-76 stating that the aircraft was down [mechanically defective] and that the pilot was returning to Ky Ha to get another aircraft. The section leader rogered the transmission. A period of thirty seconds elapsed when the pilot of YZ-76 radioed that he had lost his engine and was ditching in the water off Chu Lai. The pilot of YZ-74 lifted out of the Admin Pad and arrived over the downed aircraft. [Note: YZ-74 (Sam Shepard, crew chief) was still turning on the VIP pad when the SAR aircraft arrived over the scene] YZ-76 hit the water at the surf line and due to heavy seas and surf the aircraft was breaking up very fast. There were no survivors to be found on the surface. Millpoint search and rescue aircraft [YZ-77] arrived over the scene minutes later and assumed command of rescue operations. YZ-76 went down with a crew of four: pilot 1LT Robert P. Schena, co-pilot 1LT Gary D. Shields, and crewmen CPL Ernest H. Wilson and LCPL Patrick L. Wood. Six Marine troops on board were also lost: LCPL Timothy D. Berry, LCPL William F. Coyne, LCPL Richard E. Fuchs, PFC Francis L. Langley, LCPL Alan R. Moore, and PFC Sandy L. Ross.

Rest easy, Marine

When I learned you, Fuchs and Coyne were from the same town, I commented, "If Ohio was that good, why did all of you try to leave it at once?" I remember you as a relatively serious, good-hearted kid, and I was pleased to see the cohesiveness between you. We were stunned to lose six at once when the chopper went down in the bay, and we tried to find the H34D but conditions didn't favor us. We worked in shifts, and another team found the chopper. Every loss was deeply felt, but that was one of the saddest events of my tour of duty. Rest with God in the good company of friends and brother Marines. We'll see each other again.
