Last Known Activity
C/3/17 CAV
AH-1G tail number 67-15864
A/C was part of a hunter-killer team with an OH-6A that left Tay Ninh west heliport at 1500 hours. They proceeded to AO and conducted a visual recon for approx 30 minutes. An OV-10A in the AO leveled off at 1500' when they spotted the AH-1G approaching head-on approx 150m away. OV-10A made abrupt full left movement to avoid collision but AH-1G impacted the right wing and outboard engine, causing AH-1G to explode or disintegrate. OV-10A crew ejected safely.
