Keith Watters' Photos Page

Keith Watters' and Terry Hays' new bird. It had less than 300 hours on it, and yep, it got hit by a TRUCK! We had just landed on some fire base (don't remember the name) but, unknown to us, some grunt was changing a tire on a 2 1/2 ton truck up hill from the pad. When we set down, possibly our rotor wash "helped" the truck fall off its jack! With no wheel chocks in place, down it came -- rolling STRAIGHT at me -- and it stopped INSIDE the helicopter with me. It came to a stop in my crew chief seat!! The next morning some one wrote on the duty board, under Terry's name, "ALL TRUCK UP."
