This was aircraft 332 assigned to HSL-36 in the early 80's. While airborne in the Persian Gulf, the bird lost all main transmission oil and tried to land on deck before the transmission seized up. After landing and quickly being chained by the deck crew, the transmission did lock up and the right main mount collapsed partially tilting the aircraft on its side and causing the deck crew to scramble for the nets. The aircraft was not repairable on board the ship so the aircrew departed for home with the exception of a few guys.
