I just got in the crash report on this C130 (attached), and need some help from your membership. It lists a "Misson Number". Would this be a routine sequential number used for the flights (or) would there be further documentation filed somewhere that gives the purpose of WHY they were going to SVN.
I'm a researcher working on 63-7878 that crashed near CCK on 06 Sept 66, piloted by Capt William D Shinn III.....776th TCS/314th.....killing 5 crew + 3 pax. Looking for anyone who knew him/crew, and where this Unit was based out of. I can be reached at [email protected]
