PICTURES SUBMITTED BY Mike Castle

This CH53 is seconds away from crashing onto the ammo at " LZ Stud" Vandegrift April 9, 1969. This was to be a hook up and off to a fire base, but the rear rotor hit a ballet of 60 mm mortars rounds and ignited the ammo dump. The crew was able to escape but all that was left was a large black spot on the ground.

The pictures were taken by Mike Castle who was with Golf Company 2nd Battalion 4th Marines
