Default 118th Avn Company.

First hand account, from the Aircraft Commander.

"This incident took place in area of operation, that was known as "D Zone and was located approximately 30km N. E. of Saigon. The area was covered with heavy jungle and a well known VC stronghold. My home base was about a 10-minute flight south of the site, Ben Hoa AFB.
On the combat assault that day, we were an 18 helicopter formation, inserting ARVN troops in the landing zone. Once on short final, your landing site is very restricted and the area I landed in was very rough and uneven, when I attempted to lift up and reposition, my right skid hung on something resulting in what is known as dynamic rollover. Minor injuries and my crew and I were extracted by another helicopter."
