Photo is courtesy of Rene Aucoin. Rene says this is all that was left of the rotor heads after the blade strike at Bear Cat. Jim Kale was a pilot with B/228th at Bear Cat when this crash photo was taken. Jim recalls that a Mule Skinner aircraft that was visiting tried to taxi thru a reventment in the wrong direction, not knowing there was insufficient rotor clearance. Thanks for the details, Jim.


Juan Gozier was at Bear Cat from 1 July '69 to 1 Jan '70. He was the Crew Chief on #124 "CHI TOWN"
