Final Mission of SSGT Peter R. Coyman

On April 24, 1965, a U.S. Air Force Lockheed C-130A Hercules (#57-0475) from the 817th Troop Carrier Squadron hit high ground and crashed during a bad-weather missed approach to Korat Royal Thai Air Force Base in Thailand. Six personnel were killed in the crash. They included pilots MAJ Theodore R. Loeschner Jr. and CAPT Charles M. Dansby, navigator CAPT Robert A. Butterfield, loadmaster SGT James T. Gray, and crewmen SSGT Donnie D. Ezell and SSGT Peter R. Coyman. The Hercules reportedly crashed into mountain in poor weather following a go-around with a heavy load, lost two engines, and on low fuel. The airplane was returning from a flare dropping mission. This was the first Hercules loss related to the war in Southeast Asia. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org, aviation-safety.net, and wikipedia.org]
