Tom Nietsche A/101,70/71

This photo was taken outside of the hospital at Quang Tri after I (Tom Nietsche) flew my aircraft commander (Dennis Beattie) there after he had been shot in the neck while flying over Khe Sanh. He was going to be OK so a few of us danced outside. Those are Dennis's boots with us. From left is CE John Collier, then I believe it's WO Graham (can't remember the first name), Nietsche, and on the right is WO Mark Goodell. The sign says "WE TREAT THEM GOD HEALS THEM...The yellowing of this photo is because it's a 8X10 which has hung on my den wall for years...

This picture was taken from the rescue bird (A/101) after a crash on a CCN mission, Sept. 3, 1971. The helicopter was UH-1H #69-16701. Tom Halligan, CE of #701 remembers: We had just made an insertion and before we could pick up airspeed, all hell broke loose, we had a tail rotor failure, I don't remember hearing any firing, so we either had a tail rotor strike or a mechanical failure. All I remember is spinning wildly, The AC did one hell of an outstanding job putting it down in one piece. All four of us evacuated with no injuries. All I remember next is climbing a ladder wishing the guy in front of me would move faster. Two of us made it into the cabin and the other two rode the ladder to a safe place. Unfortunately I don't remember the names of the other crewmen.

The airstrip at Khe Sanh. If you look really closely, you will see right in the middle A/101. A few of us were coming back from CCN out by Three Rivers and stopped to produce this artwork. The three other ships flew cover for the one that landed and did the painting. This was about May or June 70.

Cobra from the 77th ARA. I don't remember their first number, 1st or 4th or something. One Saturday evening in late June 70, Charley dropped in about 6 rockets. Charley always did this on Saturday evening just to %&#@-up the weekend. He usually didn't hit anything, but this Saturday night he got lucky. Two snakes were hit; both loaded with ammo and fuel. One sent rockets from the loaded pods all over Camp Eagle. The demo guys were blowing rockets in place for a week.
