  1. while I was in South Korea, We  were flying a general one day.   We were flying  over  this large mountain, when on top, I seen the river  below us, also a Blackhawk  flying up the river. They turn and headed up the mountain at us.  Well I thought surely all the pilots see each other.  I sat there like a dumb azz and said nothing. The Blackhawk was getting closer and closer, first thing I knew it was  right in our face, That struck fear in my heart,  I hit the mike key. I yelled Bart , Blackhawk right in front of you, He throw the huey a hard right, The Blackhawk went hard right, We were   a second from hit each other.  Bart the pilot  yelled back dam Wendell you got good eyes.   Every  time I think of how we almost died, because I sat there like a dumb azz, I should have told the pilots about the other aircraft. I  though sure they seen it.   Also while I was there two cobra,s on a mountain top almost hit us, and another time A,10 almost hit us.
