Final Mission of SP5 Herbert N. Adams

Final Mission of SP5 Herbert N. Adams
On May 10, 1966, a U.S. Army de Havilland Canada CV-2B Caribou (#62-4165) from the 134th Aviation Company was tasked with a Special Forces airdrop mission at a remote camp at Cai Cai in Kien Tuong Province, RVN. During a low level extraction, a load of rice hung up in the rear of the cargo compartment resulting in loss of control and caused the aircraft to crash. The pilot and co-pilot, CAPT Gil Roessler and CW2 Joe Hudson, escaped with serious injuries, but the flight engineer, SP5 Herbert N. Adams, and the Special Forces rigger on board, SGT John J. McCloskey, were killed on impact. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org, aviation-safety.net, underwoodconsulting.org, and vpha.org]
