Air Loss - Fixed Wing

On August 24, 1965, a United States Marines Corps Lockheed KC-130F Hercules (#149802) from Marine Aerial Refueler Transport Squadron 152 (VMGR-152) was scheduled to ferry a group of U.S. Marines back to South Vietnam from a rest-and-relaxation leave in the former British Hong Kong. The 10:00 AM flight crashed on take-off from Kai Tak Airport, killing 59 out of 71 on board. The cause of the accident was attributed to the aircraft commander disregarding standard operating procedure and choosing to make a three-engine takeoff with the No.1 engine's prop unfeathered and operating only on limited power. The pilot lost control of the aircraft and veered left shortly after leaving the runway. The port (left) wing struck a sea-wall, causing the plane to burst into flames before crashing into Kowloon Bay. This was the first Hercules hull loss in Marine Corps service. Two crewmen perished in the crash, navigator SGT Gordon H. Blexrude and radio operator CPL Jerry L. Gerry. The 57 lost passengers included LCPL Major Arnold Jr., PFC Dennis D. Backen, PFC George A. Bell Jr., LCPL Narciso Bertomen Jr., LCPL Harold J. Brazen, LCPL Joseph E. Brunelle, LCPL Cecil W. Burton, PFC Terry A. Chase, LCPL Joseph A. Clancy, PFC Thomas M. Crow, LCPL Ronald L.
