In June 1961, a crash test was conducted utilizing an H-13G helicopter. An experimental breakaway fuel cell system, developed by the U. S. Army Board of Aviation Accident Research, was incorporated in this test. Although the breakaway fuel cell system did not function as anticipated during the dynamic crash test, analysis of the test results indicates that the concept of the system is sound. It is recommended that further testing of a breakaway fuel cell system, incorporating changes in the method of suspension of the system be continued.
