In Memoriam

There were at least 259 C-130 Crew Members who made the ultimate sacrifice flying in South East Asia from April 1965 until December 1972.They were lost on many different types of missions: Airlift, Tanker, Gunship, Blind Bat, Black Bird, Air America to name a few. I put together this page to honor their sacrifice.

In the listing below, I included all of the crew members that I could identify. In a few instances, I have included crew chiefs who were flying on their aircraft. I did not include passengers. However, in a few cases, crew members dead-heading on board were included when known. I also included flights to or from SEA that crashed outside the theater, for example, Hong Kong and Taiwan. I also included training accidents at Taiwan and Okinawa, since they were an integral part of our SEA operations. I would be happy to receive any input or corrections you might have because as I am sure you are aware records can sometimes be spotty at best. Information about the aircraft lost can be viewed here.
