Special Delivery

2000-2009

A "Flying Crane" was delivering a 5 ton truck to a new LZ we had just occupied at Hiep Duc. The giant "Praying Mantus" would kick up a powerful, dangerous prop blast upon landing; a friend, Julio Melendez, was injured severely here when a sheet of plywood flew out and tore open his rib cage.
