Houlton’s own account clearly states that he taxied ML407 into a desk that had been dragged out onto the airfield before the dawn first sortie of D-Day, and damaged the propeller.
One would have to wonder who and why would a desk be dragged onto an active airfield prior to the day of days.

Yes, I didn't see the second chopper, still, what a squeeze.
From seeing some of the footage prior to this, people were cliff diving off rocks nearby.

And the lanes leading to the beach absolutely rammed with cars and people.
