Operation Hastings was an American military operation in the Vietnam War. The operation was a qualified success in that it pushed the North VietnamesePeople's Army of Vietnam (PAVN) forces back across the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). As the PAVN clearly did not feel constrained by the "demilitarized" nature of the DMZ, US military leadership ordered a steady build-up of U.S. Marines near the DMZ from 1966 to 1968.
A-4 Skyhawks from MAG-12 and F-4B Phantoms from MAG-11 began bombing and napalming the two landing zones, LZ Crow (16.861°N 106.909°E), and LZ Dove (16.866°N 106.953°E) at the mouth of the Valley, 5 km northeast of Crow.
At 07:25 3/12 artillery took over the bombardment of LZ Crow and at 07:45 20 CH-46s of HMM-164 and HMM-265 began landing 3/4 Marines on LZ Crow. While the Marines met no initial resistance, LZ Crow proved to be too small for the operation. Two CH-46s collided and crashed while a third CH-46 hit a tree while trying to avoid the other two. As a result of these collisions, two Marines were killed and seven injured. All three CH-46s were too badly damaged to be recovered and would have to be destroyed.:164 Later that day another CH-46 carrying men from 2/1 Marines was hit by NVA fire and crashed, killing 13 Marines. Marines promptly renamed the Song Ngan as "Helicopter Valley".
