 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
On the night of 13 Jan 1966, a C-123B transport (tail number 55-4519) of the 310th Air Commando Squadron out of Nha Trang AB, RVN was providing flareship support for a flight of A-1E Skyraiders from the 1st ACS. The Skyraiders in turn were attacking VC positions near An Khe.

As one of the Skyraiders pulled off target after delivering ordnance, it collided with the circling flareship. Both aircraft crashed; there were no survivors.
