Additional remarks concerning this accident from UH-1B helicopter pilot 1LT Pete Orlin:

"Bob Rose was a great pilot. I had him for an advanced instructor at Ft. Rucker, Alabama. He was the finest helicopter pilot I ever flew with. He was an artist with the Huey, especially at auto-rotations. The only reason that everyone survived the crash was because of his exceptional skill." 

The wings of the U-6 were flown out by C-47...
