Bud Cockroft, Grand Reef 10th Feb 1979
"I had tail rotor failure while trooping at a contact in the Maranke TTL ( Tribal Trust Lands), south of Grand Reef on February 10th 1979. It was Bell 205 No. 6807, and my tech Keiron Meakin suffered a broken nose and a few broken ribs. I got away with a few bruises and some damage to my back, which has only become evident many years later!"
