  • Air Loss

    Posted on 10/26/16 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    On April 12, 1967, a U.S. Air Force C-141A (#66-0127) crashed after taking off from Cam Rahn Bay Air Base, Vietnam. The C-141 had arrived at Cam Ranh Bay after a flight from Yokota Air Base, Japan. It was prepared for a night departure back to Yokota. While taxiing to the runway for takeoff, the crew completed the Before Takeoff Checklist. The co-pilot inadvertently missed the item referring to the automatic Spoiler Select Switch. The switch should have been in the "Rejected Takeoff" (RTO) position, but was in the "Autoland" position when the airplane departed. Unnoticed by the crew, between 34-60 Knots, the spoilers automatically deployed to the ground position. The crew noticed a reduced acceleration rate, but elected to continue the takeoff. The aircraft became airborne, accelerated poorly and began a shallow descent. It crashed into the sea just off the end of the runway. Seven crew were killed and two were rescued. The seven lost crewmen included MAJ Harry M. Brenn, TSGT Marshall E. Brown, TSGT Norman T. Kerr, TSGT Harold E. Mahy, MSGT Herman E. Miller, CAPT Morris B. Witt, and SMS Roy E. Shults Jr. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and wikipedia.org]

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear TSGT Marshall Edward Brown, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, Sir

    Curt Carter
