Remembered

Six men died when UH-1H tail number 66-17042 had an engine failure shortly after take-off from the 'Hotel-3' heliport just south of Tan Son Nhut Air Base near Saigon. The aircraft had climbed to about 400 feet when the engine failed; although the pilot initiated an autorotation the aircraft had too little altitude and airspeed to safely autorotate to landing. Instead, the aircraft broke up on ground impact, with the cabin section continuing in motion for some 130 feet before coming to rest and burning. There were two survivors. The dead were
