This collection consists of a Flight Crew Check List Notebook for U. S. Marine Corps Sikorsky CH-53A Sea Stallion helicopter operations used by pilot Robert S. Vieta during his tour of duty in Vietnam. The notebook, which is housed in a vinyl cover labeled "USAF FLIGHT CREW CHECK LISTS," includes information regarding operation of the CH-53A (startup checklist, basic cargo weights, warning light messages, blade fold procedures, etc.), as well as approach plates for flight operations in and around Vietnam, particularly in the vicinity of Danang. Much of the information relates to radio communications and navigation, with information on headings and distance of positions from established TACAN (Tactical Air Navigation) markers, confidential call signs and frequencies, frequencies for radio and tower contacts and radio approach. The notebook is extremely worn and grimy, with dirt particles adhering to the soft vinyl sleeve pages.
