Refuelling airplane crashed in mountains. Crew bailed out.
The KB50's were at Tan Son Nhut outside of Saigon (probably at least 5 of them). I was with 33rd A&E on TDY from Yokota Japan. We were all (including the refuling crew) living at a hotel downtown Saigon. My dad S/SGT was killed in that crash. All of them were stationed in Yokota Japan
