 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
On 14 March 1970, a UH-1P (tail number 64-15491) was flying in support of a Long Range Reconnaissance Patrol mission in the Duc Lap area. The aircraft was brought down in jungle by enemy ground fire and was destroyed. Captain Dilley died in the crash, Captain Loper sustained broken bones in one foot and cuts, and both gunners sustained major injuries. An Army helicopter on the same operation landed near the crash site, retrieved the crew, and transported them to Cam Ranh Bay. After treatment they were evacuated to the U.S.
