Thought you might like a copy of this one. It happened in the Timor Sea in 1989.
The Wessex helo had just landed on the deck of Success (the replacement tanker for Supply). When the ship dipped on a large wave and a gust of wind hit her and flipped onto her side.
Needless to say shit was trumps for the helo party. One of which was a M&M 34ther, being Phantom Walker, who was a kellick air handler.
They say that shit happens in threes. At about 0830 (before the helo crash) I got a pipe to the Engine Room at the rush, one of the main engines had pumped out all her cooling water and near seized.
At about 0930 we launched one of the 25 foot rigid inflatables into a big sea and the thing rolled about two kilometers from the ship, flinging all the crew into the water, along with a months mail for USS Oldendorf.
And the helo crash happened about 1030 - 1100. The humour in the whole thing was that the XO (a birdie pilot) had the forenoon watch on the bridge (his first watch in two years and his first watch on Success), when all this shit happened.
He never kept any more watches on Success, the old man wouldn't let him. Was a big day at the office that day.
Cheers Jimmy Mac
Probably a memory Phantom would prefer to forget
