Kingsman Huey destroyed by detonated mine. "It exploded under the pilots seat, blowing him and seat through back of aircraft. I medevaced him to hospital in Phu Bai. He survived his wounds thanks to armored seat. One GI on firebase was killed when aircraft flipped on him. Mike Grisey says: I remember that mission... If it wasn't for the Door Gunner's eagle eye spotting the wires leading to mine on top of that abandoned fire base, we would have landed on top of it, and that could have been '798 blown apart... By the time we notified the ships behind us, it was too late." Photo by and comments by Tom Everhart
