With the help of Mr. Henry M. Holden, Mr. Allen Cates, and Judy Porter, I have
located and learned the fate of my old C-47, 43-15949. I was Crew Chief and
flew her at Sheppard AFB in the Mid 60's. She crashed in early 1969 in Viet
Nam. Mr. Cates forwarded me pictures of the crash with the tail number 949
I wish to thank both gentlemen and Mrs Porter for their time and efforts.
Added November 6th, 1998. I got an E-mail this morning from the son of one of the crewmembers of 949's fateful flight nearly 31 years ago. He gave me the date of the incident as Janurary 16, 1969
