The Aircraft Commander of this aircraft was CW3 Donald "Doc" Livingston when it crashed on take-off from LZ English (Bong Son) RVN (II Corps) on May 28, 1968. We lost #2 Engine (suspected enemy fire) on take-off with 6000# slingload and full fuel. The hook did not release properly and we were dragged down a steep slope where aft blades hit, then a/c pitched fwd, and ended up at bottom of hill on it's side. All the crew survived the accident; "Doc" was injured departing the wreckage, and one pax aboard was injured. We med-evac'd Doc and the Soldier to QuiNhon RVN Hospital that afternoon. I don't recall the names of the crew. Doc is still alive and retired (1970) in Killeen, TX after 20 years service in the Army."
