Other Comments:
On 14 September 1991, in the Arabian Gulf off the coast of Bahrain (coordinates N26 46.9 E050 56.4) six squadron mates of HM-15 DET TWO died when their MH-53E crashed at night after departing the USS Peleliu (LHA-5). Ironically, that particular airframe, Hurricane 16, was the MH-53E that replaced the one lost a few years earlier off the coast of California, Hurricane 6. Hurricane 16 was departing the Peleliu at night while on a resupply mission from Bahrain. The well fires from the Gulf War were still obscuring the sky and played a part in the crew's demise.
