[Photograph 2012.201.B0052.1097]

Description: Photograph taken for a newspaper owned by the Oklahoma Publishing Company. Caption: "NORMAN-An Oklahoma Army National Guard training helicopter crashed about 1:30 p.m. Saturday on Norman's southeast edge, destroying the two-man craft but apparently leaving its only occupant with minor injuries. The pilot, 31-year-old Huston C. Sansome, Walters, was taken to Norman Municipal Hospital and later transferred to Tinker Air Force Base Hospital where he was listed in good condition. The shattered helicopter came to rest in an open field approximately 500 feet southeast of the intersection of 24th Avenue Southeast and Lindsay Street. An unidentified boy reportedly spotted the downed craft and notified Army National Guard officials. Capt. Jim Haney of the Guard said Sansome had been flying an OH-23B observation helicopter as part of a weekend training session based at Max Westheimer Field in Norman." We don't have any idea what caused the crash,"Haney said, " but we will begin an investigation just as soon as Sansome is allowed to talk to investigators." A national guardsman at the scene said the only clue available was that the tail rotor apparently came off before impact. The force of the crash shattered the cockpit's protective shield, tore off the craft's tail and twisted off one main rotor. Pieces of machinery and metal were scattered over 300 feet on either side of the wreckage. Haney said the pilot apparently did not have time to radio for help before the crash and there were no witnesses. An Oklahoma Highway Patrol unit was dispatched to restrain curious onlookers until the wreckage could be taken to Westheimer Field."
