Final Mission of MAJ Charles F. Kuhlmann

MAJ Charles F. Kuhlmann was an U.S. Air Force pilot attached to the 602nd Special Operations Squadron stationed at Nakhon Phanom Royal Thai Air Force Base (NKP) in Thailand. On September 22, 1968, he was conducting an armed reconnaissance mission in the northeast corner of Laos in a USAF A-1H Skyraider. He and his wingman were flying over a dirt road designated as Route 6 which was used by the enemy to transport weapons and supplies. Kuhlmann radioed his wingman that he saw something on the road. He rolled his fully fueled and armed Skyraider past 90 degrees of bank into a steep dive. The wingman observed the A-1 diving with its nose pointed straight down, then crash into trees when it was unable to recover. MAJ Kuhlmann was initially listed as Missing in Action, later changed to Killed in Action. In February 1995, remains thought to be his were repatriated to the U.S. Later that year, they were positively identified as Kuhlmann’s.

Did not know you - Want to change that

I just moved from Germany to DC and found Charles' grave on Arlington National Cemetry by accident. Hence our surname is not widely spread there is a good chance that we are somehow related. I would love to learn more about him. Every information would be appreciated. [email protected]
