Colonel Andrews was a "Baron" Forward Air Controller (FAC) assigned at Pleiku. He was a Major when he was lost flying O-1E (S/N 56-2499) and promoted while he was missing. His body was not recovered, though finally found and identified in 2006. Their remains had been buried by local villagers.

They were on a visual reconnaissance mission to Cheo Reo, an airstrip approximately 60 miles southwest of Qui Nhon He was lost along with his passenger, First Lieutenant John Francis Conlon (an F-4 pilot), after contacting a Special Forces camp and asked to check some campfires seen in the area. Nothing more was heard from the aircraft and it disappeared.
