D/1/10 had some USAF cammo type aircraft, AH-1G and OH-6. They were painted in country. All the "sharkmouth" designs used by Cobra units in Vietnam had specific patterns, that one is D/1/10's design. Also, the "eye" with fire coming out of it was a D/1/10 exclusive.

"I believe the number of the cobra was 66-15273 and crew chief on it in mid 1969 and early 1970 was Richard Workman. As I remember, it was the only camo cobra that we had during that time." - Charlie Eaves

Cobra 33 patch was worn by one of the pilot's who flew the Camo Cobra. It was sewn on the survival vest.

This was the result of a crew chief leaving a pair of channel locks in the "hell hole" (Hydraulic compartment) and when the pilot flared at the active they slid into a bell crank locking it and the cobra flipped over. No injuries though.

Choppers that were destroyed in a sapper attack at Ahne Khe in early 1970. They went down a line of copters and threw satchel charges in the ones marked with the 1/10 cav flag on the tail boom. There were a couple of new ones in line that didn't have the cav flag on them and they weren't bothered.

"Cammo" slick with D Troop, 1/10 Cav, late 1969. We had the cammo AH-1, so decided to paint this and a OH-6 to match, calling the trio the "Calico Cats".
