|KH-738 (cn # 184) accident
at FSB Tanh Linh airfield, III Corps, (52 nm east of Bien Hoa), February 27, 1971.
The unfortunate crew of this 'Bou landed during or right after a late afternoon
rainstorm and slid off the side of the slicker than snot, only 60 foot
wide, literate runway. Before they could get back on the runway they
hit the culvert at the ramp entrance (right side of picture), and sheared
off the left main landing gear. We landed at first light the next morning
with a Bien Hoa maintenance recovery team. Fortunately the only injury
was some wounded pride.
