Détails:
The C-123 was used on a MACV-SOG mission. The Military Assistance Command, Vietnam Studies and Observation Group (MACV-SOG) was a joint service high command unconventional warfare task force engaged in highly classified operations throughout Southeast Asia.
The aircraft had no standard markings on it, but were painted with a unique camo pattern of low-reflectivity black, green and brown paint. The aircraft was rigged with pylons on it. All aircraft were sanitized as well as the nationality and individuality of those on board.
On June 27, 1965 the C-123 operated on a night mission from Nha Trang to Saigon with 14 "Chinese Nationalists" on board. While on approach, the C-123 started receiving ground-fire and subsequently crashed.
