A1E Crew Chief

I was the crew chief on Major Armstrong’s A1E aircraft. I strapped him in the cockpit that day. He carried a 44 magnum and stated that if he HAD to shoot someone he didn’t want to have to shoot them twice. I was told that as he was inverted on the mission the bullets hit his canopy. He was a good man and I liked him very much.

BRAVE PILOT

Son of U.S. Air Force Lt. General Frank Alton Armstrong, Jr.

On October 6, 1967, Major Frank Alton "Dutch" Armstrong, III was the pilot of an A-1E which was on a bombing mission in southern Laos. His was the lead aircraft in a flight of two A-1E Skyraiders from the 1st Air Commando Squadron, 7th Air Force, based at Pleiku, South Vietnam.

As Major Armstrong rolled his aircraft, tail number 52-132663, in to deliver his weapons, his aircraft was hit by antiaircraft fire, and his Skyraider rolled inverted and crashed. His wingman did not see Major Armstrong exit the aircraft, and no emergency radio signals or other signs of his survival were observed.
