I was maning the fire plug on the flight deck when it happened. We had just arrived in the Med and were at anchor. It was our first vert rep in the Med, we did it under way in Nam hundred times with out a problem.

"10. On 16 June 1969, during VERTREP operations in the harbor of Palma de Mallorcaa, a UH-46D helicopter came too close to an omni-directional antenna, clipping it with its rotors and crashed over the side. The crew was rescued and no life was lost. That was the last VERTREP in which the Annapolis ever participated. (Click for Additional Information provided by David Heise, Sr. (IC3 '69))"ing
