Aircraft


This 8x10 glossy came from the estate of a Bell Helicopter engineer. It is a UH1-D. According to the inscription on the back, it is supposed to be the first UH1-D production prototype. It's stamped "File Copy" on the front and identified as an official Bell photo on the back.

"Strictly fun in this picture.  I did this a lot when we did low level, high speed passes over the troop area coming in from the AO after getting kills.  Would do a cyclic climb to almost vertical, maintain 35 lbs torque, let the airspeed almost hit zero and then kick it over with right cyclic and pedal.  It'd invert and then we'd dive it back towards the troop area the same way we came in.  You'd normally break at about 30-50', 150-170 knots and then enter traffic for landing.  You might call it a hammerhead that would turn the belly of the Cobra up to the sky.  Cobra's were very acrobatic if you knew what you were doing.  Loaches would do the same thing only very quickly; we called them "tail kicker rollovers".  I just don't have a picture of one but I did them almost daily during Cambodia. This shot was taken of CWO Ron Timberlake at the controls during LamSon 719"

"The Cobra picture is indicative of what our military leaders of that time were thinking.  Viet Nam was a burden on President Johnson and he wanted to win it quickly.  Ergo the AH-1G.  More weapons faster. This aircraft was developed from a prototype of a smaller version on an OH-13 airframe.  I saw it on a tour of the Bell plant when I was in flight school in 1967.

    A prototype is a throw away, and this one should have been thrown away.  The tail rotors were falling off this aircraft after about 300 hours of flight time.  Fifteen aircraft went down before they were grounded.  Only two crews survived, and I was a member of one of those two man crews.  We lost our tail rotor on short final (150 feet) and completed three 360's before we landed.  I was flying with a guy named David Byers.  One of us rolled the throttle back to flight idle to stop the spin; however, we didn't pull pitch fast enough to prevent the hard landing. The tail rotor yoke that the tail rotor blades were attached to failed and the a/c slung a blade, The 90 degree gearbox was ripped out of the tail boom, and the drive shaft failed as you can see in the picture.  The broken tail rotor is on the ground in two pieces in front of the nose. I am 60% disabled today because of this.  We broke the crashworthy seats and didn't realize the trauma we sustained to our spinal columns. The Bell engineers put the tail rotor on the other side of the tail boom and added two blades to it. I switched to an OH-58." - James Thomson, B Troop 1/9 Cavalry.

This shot was taken in the rear area well removed from the rest of the base. CW2 Jeff Clink was the AC. This ship was just rearmed and was taking off to go get fuel and return to the war. After taking on 1400 lbs of JP-4, it would barely hover. This was an example of a full power takeoff with a relatively light load. Never happen after full of fuel.

Killer Egg" OH-6 "Loach" with M27 weapons system designed as Primary armament for the OH-6 Light Observation Helicopter. The system consisted of one M134 7.62mm Minigun mounted on the left side of the aircraft. It was also used on the OH-58. This system introduced the capability of offensive action for the Aero Scout in Vietnam, a point surrounded in controversy as some units felt the Aero Scout role should be only observation.

Does anyone know anything about this bird? I am looking for any info I can get on the military history of this UH-1H # 66-16298. She was purchased from the Sacramento (California) Sherriff's Dept. who acquired her via DRMO from an Army Reserve unit. The current owner plans to have her at the VHPA reunion this July in Vegas. Any information on unit and/or crew would be appreciated. Please contact the site manager with any info!

Original artwork produced by Hughes aircraft to Promote the OH-6 "Loach"



Official certificate of qualification issued by Hughes Aircraft to qualified OH-6 pilots. This example has never been issued.



Here is a photo of one of my ship's OH-6 SN# 67915 (Phan Thiet summer of '68). It carries the only known 4 shot 2.75 rocket pod from Rock Island Arsenal and the M27 mini-gun. The pilot in the photo is Carl L King, RED 6 Scout Platoon Leader in 1968. There are 3 rockets visible in the pod. The system was quite accurate. And it was a shocker, I'm sure, for the NVA when we rolled in "hot" punching off rocket's and cranking that mini at them. If you look or zoom in on the photo you can see the engine door's are open which was SOP for OH6 cool down to prevent fuel control problems similar to vapor lock in a car.

Flight line at Wolters. Looks like Ground Resonance got that one. That happened to me once when I was going to Cobra School at Hunter. Fortunately, the Cobra has a lot more power than an TH-55 , fortunately, we were empty (no ammo) and fortunately, I had an IP that jumped on the controls and pulled my ass out of the fire. I've made some less than stellar landings but never this bad. You've made a good landing if you can walk away from the aircraft.  You've made a great landing if you get to reuse the aircraft.

Southern Airways Mechanical Crash

A night shift mechanic was running up this TH-55 (Mattel Messerschmitt) for a ground check after working on it ourside the Downing Heliport when it went to shaking itself apart after reaching about 2,700 RPM. It was determined that it had at least one low-to-flat oleo strut plus M/R blade hydralic dampers out of torque and phase. The combination of these two items caused it to go into ground resonance as seen. The mech. wasn't seriously hurt (serious laundry bill) and this helicopter was rebuilt and flown again. - Lyndell Garrett (Stagefield mechanic on Woggi and Duncan's flights)

This ship belonged to the 4/77th ARA. She was on her second tour, after having been shot up by her door gunner on her first tour...he lost control of the 60 and put 8 rounds in her. Including the A/C armor plate...musta' been one pissed off pilot.  This photo was taken at FSB Curahee in the A Shau Valley, in the summer of 69 during Apache Snow. Note the shoes sticking up on top of the rocket pod....snoozin' crewman.

Update on 16161 previously posted. OH-6 67-16161 as it appeared late Sept.'71 and as it is today. The two lower pictures are the most recent & current as of this writing, May 1, 2002. This is the aircraft in which Cpt. Wilbur Latimer was KIA 71Jan19 while serving with C troop, 2/17th Cav based in Phu Bai. The top photo was taken later that year, shortly after Typhoon Agnes/Supertyphoon Bess (Sept.18-21) struck, which accounts for damage to hangar roof in background. The aircraft is seen delivering a passenger to the 2/17th flight line at Camp Eagle...I can't ID the pilot, but believe the passenger may be Malcolm Lathers. Currently owned by Ronn Walker & Tropical Helicopter based at Leesburg Reg. Airport-Leesburg, FL. (see www.tropicalhelicopter.com) who shared the lower photos with me for the purpose of this posting.

A downed L-19, tail number 0-6418 and from the Prancing Horse on the tail, probably was some sort of FAC in support of 11th ACR operations. Taken either in Hau Nghia or Tay Ninh province...maybe the pilot can clear this up.

C130 at Phu Bai terminal in '71. Forgot who this is, but at least one was wearing stars.

I boarded C-130's twice at this terminal.  The first time was in January 1970 to fly to Saigon and then by chopper to Vung Tau.  The last time was the best, when I DEROS'd in November 1970.  I can hardly remember getting on the planes there either time.  I know I often saw them come and go as I was working on the flight line and wondering to myself, "well there goes some lucky folks going back to the world!" - Emil J.

Helicopter 66-00970, Huey UH-1D/H, was procured by the U.S. Army in Nov. 1966. 970 arrived in South Vietnam in Febuary of 1967 and was assigned to the 128th Assault Helicopter Company. 970 is now in the possesion of Chapter 243 of the Vietnam Veterans of America in Lee's Summit, Missouri. She is trailered to a variety of events yearly in an effort to educate the public and create awareness of the history of the conflict in S.E. Asia and it's veterans.

Engine Wash: An important part of the preventive maintenance program on the OH6A aircraft was a weekly internal engine wash with hot, soapy water. While someone cranked the engine the soapy water was poured slowly into the engine intake, resulting in cleaning out some of the Pleiku dust and heliport penta-prime. The end result was bubbles out the exhaust pipe and better engine performance. It was quite a procedure to get the hot water, but my jeep driver Herman DeAtley knew where to get it.Since we had 10 OH6s we tried to do one or two a day, every day. We used Tide washing powder and I decided to send Tide a letter and picture with the cutline" Dirt can't hide from intensified Tide, even in Vietnam" I thought maybe the manufacturer would send us a case or two of this product, but all we got was a "Thank you for Using Tide" letter.

This Huey was equipped with the DECCA navigation system. I think the Tomahawks had three in the Unit at the time I was there. Very few pilots knew how to operate the system. It had a paper rotating map mounted on the instrument panel glare shield and triangulated three radio beams for navigation.

The C130 was the life line for Soc Trang, transporting ammunition, fuel, food, spare parts. During TET offensive of 1968, the C130 "bladder Birds" were our only sourse for fuel when mortor or rocket set fire to our POL storage facility. The first day of that offensive, the transport helicopters were evacuated to a more secure location and the Gun Platoons stayed to defend the airfield. At one time, Soc Trang was left with the rockets in the tubes and the fuel in the gunship's tanks when the Airforce sent several F-4's for a little payback. The F-4's used the runway as approach to target, releasing the bombs over the runway to impact several hundred feet from the threshold. Everyone climbed on something to get better view while shouting "Happy New Year, you &%$#*!
