    Question Original HMM-163 Vietnam

    I know there has to be someone on here from the 1962 squadron who can tell me what the mechanical failure was with the crash on 10/06/1962? This is Jim Mansfield - Crew Chief who got shotup covering the withdrawal of YP-80 on 10/04/1962. I learned about the crash when Lt Sinnott joined me at the Army Field Hospital - he was never able to talk to me. I would like to know what happened and I cannot recall Andy's aircraft ID. Flew along side and even picked him and the people with him up out of a rice paddy they autorotated into before we moved north.
