REMEMBRANCE PROFILE IN PROGRESS - SUBJECT TO CHANGE ------ From Rich Hopka AFTWS Historian: TC-47B Tail #44-76574 Crashed 1 KM North of Tan Son Nhut AFB no boots date 7th Air Force 355th TFW 355th Field Maint Squadron ------- From Tail Number Roster: 76574 (c/n 16158/32906) completed as TC-47B-30-DK. Crashed near Saigon, SVN Nov 26, 1966. 25 killed. ------- C-47B tail number 44-76574, a wing transport aircraft assigned to the 388th Tactical Fighter Wing at Korat RTAFB, Thailand. According to Hobson's Vietnam Air Losses the aircraft departed from Tan Son Nhut Air Base near Saigon after dark on 26 November on an administrative flight back to Korat RTAFB. Shortly after take-off the aircrew advised Tan Son Nhut they had an engine problem and were returning to that airfield. Their first approach was aborted when the landing gear would not extend; their second approach ended in a fiery crash into a rice paddy while on short final to the runway. The port engine's propeller was in the "feathered" position, indicating that engine had been shut down before the crash. Hobson says that 31 people - 30 military, 1 civilian - were killed in the crash. The casualty database shows only 25 military personnel killed in non-hostile fixed wing incidents during the period 26-30 Nov 1966, all in Gia Dinh Province (where Tan Son Nhut is located) and all on 26 Nov 1966. The "Plane Crash Information" web site has data on the crash; it says there were 25 people on board and all died in the crash. The Virtual Wall believes that Hobson's 31 dead is not correct. -------- Those lost aboard this flight that day were: A2C Lawrence Barcklow CMS Hardy Bell SMS Earl Burns, Jr. MSgt Dieter Dietz 1Lt Charles Faulkner LtCol Harold Graves Capt Carroll Hageman Capt John R.
