  1. My Dad, Matt Ahearn, was part of the crew involved in the mid-air between

    the CG C-130 and Navy P-3. It occurred on 12 December 1971, Midway Hawaii.

    I believe they were searching for a Danish freighter that had gone down in bad weather.

    Sadly, my Dad passed away last month. I had just recently shown him the thread on

    Military.com. He was stunned to find that anyone was interested in the incident. He told

    me the best stories of his days flying planes and helicopters for the Coast Guard. I wish

    he could have shared them with everyone. At his funeral one of his crewmen told me

    another story of how he landed a C-130 with only ONE engine!!

    Anyone who would like to share memories of my Dad is more than welcome to send them

    to me. Thanks for helping keep my Dad alive in memories.
