    In mid 1966 we lost a Charlie gun ship in Lao's ( misprint, we were not in Laos at that time and date :cool: ). Engine fuel control shot out so it landed soft in a small clearing. Because of the Location it was deemed too risky to recover { we did pull the crew out, unharmed ), so a quick command decision and a pair of our Falcon Platoon's Charlie Models made gun runs until nothing was left that could be identified as to origin. just a burning heap where once a almost new UH-1C helicopter sat. It was really kind of sad.:(
