Off the Coast of Saigon, 1975
An ARVN Huey is pushed into the sea
From the flightdeck of a US Navy ship, "The Huey being pushed over the fantail with the star on the tail, is General Kerry's bird. He was the man in charge of both operations; Frequent Wind and Eagle Pull. He was not happy and wanted to find out who was driving the forklift, but to the best of my knowledge never did. How do you explain loosing your helicopter?". Caption provided by Donnie Shearer; Retired GySgt and former Combat Photographer.  There was just not enough room on the flight deck for other choppers circling and waiting to touch down.
