68. The gunship that blew-up the Can Tho Airfield Ammo Dump.
I don't have any info on the ship except that I remember hearing that the ship was just back from major overhauls done in Saigon. We were told that the wires were crossed there where they had Viets working on them. I wonder what they really found out eventually?
A right front quarter view of the ship.  Are those infrared cameras on the front? The number on the nose looks like 112, if you don't magnify it too much.

71.  Picture of the revetment wall that was facing the gunship.  You can see where the other rocket hit the concrete and was stopped, the burn mark shows how it was laying.

72.  Shows a Screaming Eagle hook being moved from the ammo dump area. I don't believe this ship was parked there during that night, although I thought I had a picture of the hook.  It had all of its windows blown out from the concussion of the blast.  Can you imagine being in that guard tower when the dump blew?

73.  A view out the left door gunner's window at a hover near the end of the 271st ramp and should be near the ammo dump.  This gives you some idea how far the rocket had to go since it passed our hanger.  It was a long way to the ammo dump from the gunships revetment.  Its revetment is in the top center of the picture in that small line of cobras and slicks. I swear I heard it go by, while I was working in the hanger that night. Photo by: Gary Waddell

91.  1969 INNKEEPER 66-19117  broke a pitch link on start up. The aft blade hit the tunnel on the top of the
ship that carries the drive shaft and
flight control rods.   It also tore a hole in the fuselage near the left door gunner's station.  I was told that the gunner said there was some loud bangs and then he was sitting in sunlight.  Lucky for the crew that it broke on the ground and not at 5000 ft.
  I was on the recovery crew that was sent out to dismantle her, so that she could be sling loaded out.  We removed the blades and rotor hubs, engines and pumped out the fuel into fuel bladders.

92.  1969 INNKEEPER 66-19117
This shows how we stripped it down for recovery.  She sure sit high without the fuel, blades, hubs, and engines. Some of my buddies are sitting on the fuel bladders.
