We left Manila bound for North Danger reef, where there was a ground station and secondary Net Control to which I was assigned. We encountered a Typhoon and while Lieutenant Ciezynski was telling the Japanese Captain to turn back and the Japanese Captain was telling the Lieutenant that we should turn back (in Japanese) we hit such rough weather that we blew the shocks on the Helicopter and HAD to turn back.
