Abstract:

The report is the second in a longitudinal series of reports dealing with the pilot disorientationvertigo problem in Regular Army UH-1 helicopter operations. Individual case history data extracted from the USABAAR master aircraft accident files are presented on 52 major orientation-error accidents that occurred in UH-1 aircraft during fiscal year 1968. Summary data listings involving a variety of operational and pilot-related accident factors are presented for each of the cases. The listings are arranged to distinguish between those factors and events present before takeoff i.e., the initial conditions associated with a given accident, and those which occurred or were manifested during the actual airborne phase of the accident.
