On or about 1805 hours, 23 June 1970, aircraft SN 67-17954 departed Ca Mau Airstrip enroute to Can Tho AAF, RVN. At approximately 1840 hours the aricraft suffered suspected mechanical failure of the main rotor system. The main rotor blades sheared through the cockpit and the mast sheared just below the main rotor head, separating from the aircraft at an approximate altitude of 1500 feet. The aircraft with the tail rotor still intact and the engine running, began to spin, impacting the ground with vertical and circular momentum.
