 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
As the aircraft lifted off, the right cargo door came off, hitting the main rotor blades and causing mast bumping to occur. The tail boom and main rotor blades separated from the aircraft, causing the helicopter to crash and burn. One account states the helicopter went inverted, coming down on top of a barracks at Cu Chi, killing “many” people. All seven persons aboard the aircraft lost their lives in the crash. They included aircraft commander WO1 Ricky P. Mattern, pilot 1LT James L. Ante, crew chief SP4 Ray A. Schold, gunner SP4 David Carroll, and passengers WO1 Lewis C. Gilder, SP4 William C. Rouse, and SP4 William L. Lockhart. [Taken from vhpa.org]
