Vietnam Wall Panel coords 54W 041

A recon team had just been inserted and came under heavy attack as the helicopter departed. With utter disregard for his own safety Capt Littler turned back into the LZ to extract the team. At about 100 feet above the zone the CH-46A piloted by Capt Littler was taken under intense automatic weapons fire. The helicopter caught fire in the aft transmission area and at the same time the pilot and the copilot were hit in the neck at the same time by small arms fire. Out of control the A/C crashed to the ground on top of the recon team that the crew had so heroically tried to save. All eight members of the recon team were killed as well as the four crewmembers in the aircraft and one recon man in the aircraft.
