SSG Len Demaray "walked through the wreckage and examined some of the pieces. Some of the pieces that were not recovered were the rocket pods, and only one wing was brought in, only one 20mm cannon was recovered (I do not know which side), all the .50 cals were recovered."
Len also said, "When the accident team said that she shot herself down, I accepted their findings, I had no reason to doubt their results."
The aircraft wreckage was recovered to the Golf Course at An Khe for the investigation.
28 Jan 98 - "I took an 8x10 B/W close-up photo of the above forward crown to the Army Aviation Museum (Fort Rucker). The museum has a piece of metal with a Go-Go patch painted on it. It is dark OD outside and zinc chromate inside. Steve Maxham (Director) and I compared the photo to his piece of metal. We compared the design of the patch and verified the rivit paterns and placement. THEY MATCHED! The museum piece came from Cost Of Living. Someone had the forethought to hack the patch out of the forward crown and bring it home."
Godspeed "Co$t of Living"
