Camp Evans /// Pat Murphy photos
Pictured below is Crimson Tide 472, with only its back end sitting on the edge of LZ Tiger in A Shau Valley. It is being unloaded while the front end is hovered. Pat Murphy said, "If I had know this picture was being taken, I would have come out of the bird and posed for this guy."
Pictured below is 472's crew. Flight Engineer (right) is Tom Dowda and Crewchief (left) is Pat "The Hookman" Murphy. Our "Uncle Sam" gave them this brand new "B" model after they lost #109 in the A Shau Valley. After Tom's DROS, Pat became FE and Arliss Busby became his CrewChief.
