Ground Casualty

On February 20, 1967, a civilian twin-engine Beechcraft airplane on approach to Nha Trang Airbase in Khanh Hoa Province, RVN, crashed after getting caught in the prop wash of a much larger C-130 Hercules transport aircraft. The Beechcraft spun out of control, lost a wing after clipping a telephone pole, and crashed into a U.S. Army truck and Vietnamese bus on Beach Road, 1 ½ miles from the city of Nha Trang. The accident killed two American servicemen in the truck, driver PFC Thomas H. Zehner from the 88th Transportation Company, and passenger A1C Elmo Burney Jr. from the 637th Supply Squadron, 31st Tactical Fighter Wing. Seven other persons were killed, including two Americans on the Beechcraft. The plane, leased by Continental Air Service, reportedly was enroute from Saigon carrying five U.S. civilian employees of the RMK-BRJ construction company. Three other Americans and four injured Vietnamese civilians were taken to the 8th Field Hospital in Nha Trang in fair condition.
