An O-2 was being airlifted to Da Nang for repairs under an Army CH-47 Chinook when it fell from the sling and was destroyed. This was the third such incident of this kind since May although this must be balanced by the many hundreds of aircraft and helicopters that were successfully retrieved by heavy lift helicopters during the war.
