Aircraft Histories and Incidents while

with the 118th AHC.

(From VHPA Databases)

The 89 aircraft below listed were involved in approximately 210 separate incidents. However, be aware this is NOT ALL the aircraft involved in incidents or accidents while in the 118th. It represents all the records found, thus far, by researchers in the Vietnam Helicopter Pilots Association. Some of the earlier aircraft(probably prior to 1966)are not listed. There are a few H-21's listed seperately.

Click on the Tail Number to see reports of accidents and combat incidents for a particular serial numbered aircraft. In many cases, the aircraft was repaired in theater and returned to service.

In some incidents, there were KIA or WIA personnel on board the aircraft, including paxs. These are often listed by name and rank and crew position.

Finally, the post-Vietnam history of the aircraft is shown last, even after return to the US.

A great debt of thanks goes to the VHPA and Gary Roush, Database Chairman, for allowing these records to be included in this site.

NOTE--There are only 5 CH-21s in this list and they are listed seperately by themselves. According to MG Robert "Bob" Brandt, Retired, who was the first CO of the 573rd Maintenance Det. of the 33rd Trans. Co., "there were two CH-21's lost during the period 15 Sep 62 to 9 Aug 63. One was lost in the vicinity of the Ho Bo Woods in the spring of 63. The other had an engine failure along the road from Bien Hoa to Vung Tau while returning to Bien Hoa. After the touch down, the right landing gear failed and it rolled on its right side. The 611th, out of Vung Tau, was given the responsibility for recovery of the helicopter. They cut it in half and delivered the pieces back to Bien Hoa. MAJ Henderson, the CO, was not very happy."
