Saw the post on AK's being ineffective and have to vent a personal shot. Nov '67 with HMM-263 [ H-34's] at Phu Bai. Pilots from the squadron relieving 263 had arrived [ HMM-264 I think] but their '46's were still enroute on a boat. 263's s were going stateside to reform with '46's. Had just come back from a gaggle [supporting the Army] that dropped off people who didn't exist doing something that never happened from a place we put them 3 days earlier we never were. Landed at Phu Bai 28 minutes into the 30 minute low fuel light and taxied into the fuel pits. Mitch Gibbs [ crew chief EG-5] told me we also had a flat tailwheel. Asked him how long to get a tow tractor. At least an hour. How about air taxiing back so fuel pits weren't blocked for rest of gaggle? Tower says O K so we air taxi back to park it and crew can have more time for repair for next launch. Next morning at the all pilot's meeting [ 34's and 46's combined], the 46 CO stood up and says he saw the most dangerous, unsafe and unauthorized flight maneuver he ever saw the day before. An H-34 hovering down the taxi ramp. If he ever caught anyone doing that again he would take their wings and send them to be a FAC somewhere. Being a mere Lt., I took it and didn't have the brass to ask 1] should I have left the fuel pits closed for everyone else low fuel for an hour 2] If it was so unsafe, why was it taught at P'cola as a basic flight maneuver- remember the box patterns? 3] Has anyone sent a Notam to VMO? That's the only way Huey's moved- via air taxi [ no wheels]. 4] Tower said it was OK so that was authorization for me. Sorry, but getting old, cranky and just had to vent and let loose of that burr under my saddle.
