  4. I was the crew chief on c-130E 64-0536 based out of CCK. I considered it my pride in taking care it for years. Wherever it flew, I was on it. Luck or whatever people call it, I was discharged Sept 1970. After a couple of months stateside I received a letter from the Air Force asking for a statement of the mechanical airworthiness of the aircraft. I did so state of the constant problems with the aileron system sticking. Sent the letter back and to this day have not heard any response. Every push rod, pulley, booster packs and cables were changed and still pilots would complain of the sticking. When you take such pride in your aircraft, it was such a sorrow to hear that the aircraft you were in charge of crashed, killing all on board. I have heard different stories of how it crashed, one was that it just rolled over on its back after takeoff. I still miss that aircraft, it was the finest, reliable workhorse known. I must have racked up over a thousand hours crew time, and would you believe the Air Force in all its gullibility does not have any record that I was in Viet Nam.
