Accident Summary:

AIRCRAFT, UH-1H SN ^67-17413^, AND CREW WERE ASSIGNED TO THE MISSION OF COMMAND AND CONTROL FOR THE ^1ST BATTALION, 46TH INFANTRY.^ PRIOR TO THE ACCIDENT THE AIRCRAFT AND CREW HAD FLOWN OVER 10 HOURS FOR THE ^196TH LIGHT INFANTRY BRIGADE.^ DURING THIS 10 HOUR PERIOD NUMEROUS MISSIONS OF EXTREME EMERGENCY HAD BEEN CONDUCTED BY THE COMMAND AND CONTROL AIRCRAFT. ^MR. JACKSON^ AND CREW WERE GIVING ASSISTANCE TO A MED EVAC AIRCRAFT WHEN THE 20 MIN FUEL WARNING LIGHT CAME ON WITH 300 LBS OF FUEL INDICATED ON THE FUEL PRESSURE GAUGE. AFTER BEING ASSURED THAT THE MED EVAC AIRCRAFT HAD COMPLETED THE DUST-OFF, ^MR. JACKSON^ BROKE STATION WITH APPROXIMATELY 200 LBS OF FUEL INDICATED. THE AIRCRAFT WAS FLOWN TO LZ PROFESSIONAL IN ORDER TO DROP OFF THE EXECUTIVE OFFICER, ^MAJOR REMNER,^ FOR THE 1/46. ^MR. JACKSON^ EXPEDITIOUSLY STARTED INBOUND FOR HILL 29 IN ORDER TO REFUEL. IT CAN BE APPROXIMATED THAT THE AIRCRAFT HAD ALREADY FLOWN OVER 10 MIN SINCE THE 20 MIN FUEL WARNING LIGHT CAME ON. IT IS APPROXIMATELY 15 NAUTICAL MILES TO HILL 29 FROM LZ PROFESSIONAL. THE AIRCRAFT COMMANDER FLEW THE AIRCRAFT AT 6200 RPM AND 99 KNOTS IN ORDER TO KEEP HIS FUEL CONSUMPTION AT A MINIMUM. ABOUT 2 MILES OUT FROM HILL 29 THE ENGINE APPARENTLY STOPPED RUNNING MOMENTARILY. THE FIRST INDICATION THAT THE AIRCRAFT COMMANDER NOTED WAS THAT THE LEFT BOOST PUMP WARNING LIGHT CAME ON. SHORTLY THEREAFTER THE ENGINE QUIT. THERE WAS A SUCCESSFUL AUTOROTATION TO THE RICE FIELDS PERFORMED. THE AIRCRAFT COMMANDER MANAGED TO GET OFF ONE MAY DAY CALL BUT HE WAS NOT SURE IF THE CALL WAS SUCCESSFUL OR NOT. NOTICING THAT THE ENGINE WAS STILL RUNNING, THE AIRCRAFT COMMANDER DECIDED TO TRY TO MAKE IT TO HILL 29. AFTER CLIMBING TO APPROXIMATELY 200 FEET AND 70 KNOTS, THE ENGINE QUIT DUE TO LACK OF FUEL. ONCE AGAIN A SUCCESSFUL AUTOROTATION WAS PERFORMED. SUBSEQUENT DAMAGE OCCURRED DURING LANDING. THE AIRCRAFT WAS MANEUVERED TO AVOID STRIKING A RICE PADDY DIKE WITH THE SKIDS. IN DOING SO, THE TAIL BOOM STRUCK THE DIKE CAUSING A SUDDEN STOPPAGE OF THE TAIL ROTOR. THE AIRCRAFT LANDED IN AN UPRIGHT POSITION AND THERE WAS A 4 TO 5 FOOT GROUND RUN AT THE TIME OF IMPACT. THE NORMAL PROCEDURES AS FAR AS MAY DAY CALLS, EVACUATION, AND AIRCRAFT SECURITY WERE EMPLOYED. AFTER NEGATIVE RADIO CONTACT AND ABOUT 15 MINUTES AT THE CRASH SCENE, THE AIRCRAFT COMMANDER HAD MADE THE DECISION THAT HE AND ONE OF THE PASSENGERS, A MASTER SERGEANT, WOULD TRY TO REACH HILL 29, ABOUT ONE MILE AWAY, ON FOOT. ABOUT THE SAME TIME ANOTHER AIRCRAFT FROM THE SAME UNIT SPOTTED THE DOWNED AIRCRAFT'S DISTRESS SMOKE AND IMMEDIATELY CAME IN TO MAKE THE RESCUE. THE AIRCRAFT WAS SECURED FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE NIGHT BY TROOPS STATIONED AT HILL 29. THEY USED TRACK VEHICLES TO REACH THE DOWNED AIRCRAFT AND REMAINED AT THE LOCATION UNTIL THE AIRCRAFT WAS RECOVERED THE FOLLOWING MORNING.
