Final Mission of PFC Robert L. Clark

Final Mission of PFC Robert L. Clark
On May 4, 1966, a U.S. Army helicopter CH-47A (tail number 64-13138) from the 147th Assault Support Helicopter Company ("Hill Climbers") crashed during a combat mission 13 nautical miles northwest of Nhon Co while deploying to a forward base. The passengers were from 2nd Battalion, 502nd Infantry of the 101st Infantry Division. One of the passengers was the 1st Brigade’s Roman Catholic chaplain, Major William J. Barragy. Eyewitnesses agreed for the most part that there were flames coming from the rear of the aircraft and it seemed to have no forward airspeed and was spinning and falling straight down. The technical report suggested that the combining transmission failure, excessive heat, and fire causing the #2 drive shaft to separate. The resulting fire may have been ingested into the remaining engine causing a loss of power, SAS (Stability Augmentation System), and aircraft electrical systems. There is evidence that the pilot attempted to flare the helicopter prior to impact to no avail, the aircraft crashing on its left side and was consumed by fire. There were no survivors. The crew included aircraft commander CW3 George A. Clark, pilot CW3 John A. Eddy, flight engineer SP6 Edgar S. Doliber, crew chief SP5 Aaron B. Aumiller, and gunner SP4 Fairley W. Mills. The passengers were MAJ William J. Barragy, PFC Roger L. Berg, SSGT John A. Brown, PFC Robert L. Clark, PFC Roger C. Collette, SP4 John F. Concannon, MSGT J. D. Harrell, SSGT Gene Hawthorne, PFC Malakia Jackson Jr., PFC Michael Simpson, PFC Joseph J. Swayze, PFC Robert E. Thompson, SP4 Earnest A. Tucker Jr., FSGT Harden B. Walker, and SP4 Howard D. Weiss.
