Accident Summary:

ON 23 FEBRUARY 1971, THE 223D COMBAT AVIATION BATTALION WAS ENGAGED IN A COMBAT OPERATION IN THE KINGDOM OF LAOS. THE OPERATION BEGAN AT APPROXIMATELY 1100 HOURS AND THE UH-1H TROOP CARRYING HELICOPTERS WERE TO MAKE 2 SORTIES EACH INTO THE LANDING ZONE WHILE BEING UNDER CONTINUAL COVER OF UH-1C HELICOPTER GUNSHIPS. THE UH-1H HELICOPTERS HAD EACH MADE A LONG LIFT DOWNWIND WITH A FINAL APPROACH ALONG THE LONG AXIS OF THE RIDGELINE, LANDING TOWARD THE EAST. THE UH-1C GUNSHIPS WERE IN A COVERING ORBIT INSIDE THE TRAFFIC PATTERN OF THE UH-1H HELICOPTERS. A TOTAL OF 38 SORTIES HAD BEEN FLOWN INTO THE LANDING ZONE, WITH THE UH-1H HELICOPTERS LANDING SINGLE SHIP. THE LAST UH-1H IN THE FLIGHT BEGAN HIS TURN TO BASE LEG AND ON TO FINAL APPROACH AT A POSITION APPROXIMATELY THE CENTER OF THE RIDGELINE. AT THE SAME TIME THE UH-1C GUNSHIP WAS BEGINNING ITS TURN TO BREAK AWAY FROM ITS PASS TOWARD THE LANDING ZONE. AS THE UH-1C WAS IN ITS TURN AT APPROXIMATELY 40 TO 50 DEGREES ANGLE OF BANK, THE UH-1H HELICOPTER FLEW INTO THE ROTOR SYSTEM OF THE UH-1C FROM THE LEFT SIDE. THE UH-1C LOST ITS ROTOR SYSTEM, CONTINUED A LEFT TURN, WENT INVERTED, AND CRASHED NOSE LOW EXPLODING ON IMPACT. THE UH-1H CONTINUED STRAIGHT AHEAD, LOST ITS ROTOR SYSTEM, CRASHED IN A NOSE LOW ALTITUDE, AND EXPLODED ON IMPACT. THE CREW MEMBERS AND PASSENGERS (ON THE UH-1H) OF BOTH AIRCRAFT WERE KILLED ON IMPACT.

A CONCERNED HOMEOWNER,

THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING

Where in the BIBLE does the Lord tell us to vote for the less of two evils? Promoting A Mormon is no different than voting for the Devil himself yet many are convinced it's the LORDS will!

NO ONE IS PERFECT,BUT SHOULD WE DO THE DEVILS WORK FOR HIM?
