Fallen Heroes Details

In Memory Of
Frederick Enright
California Highway Patrol, CA
End of watch: 1975-06-07
Aircraft: Hiller UH-12
Officers Frederick W. Enright and Adolfo M. Hernandez were patrolling in the CHP helicopter at 2:45 p.m. when it crashed and burned in the Fremont area east of Highway 17. Enright, the 31-year-old pilot, and Hernandez, the 35-year-old observer, were both killed instantly.

Witnesses said the helicopter went into a steep dive, and went approximately 50 to 75 feet off the ground, flipped over and then crashed. Investigation into the cause of the accident determined there was a mechanical failure in the controls that affected the pilots ability to control the horizontal attitude of the aircraft.

Officer Enright was a member of the Patrol for four years.
