Howdy Bruce;

I contacted the Red River Valley Pilots Association and they informed me as follows:

Jeff, thank for your service....with regards to your question... following
information is found in Chris Hobson's "Vietnam Air Losses". It was on 6
July 1972 that F-4D 65-0800 assigned to the 497th TFS, 8TFW, crashed as it attempted to land in a heavy rainstorm at night at Ubon after a strike mission. One source suggests that it was hit by small arms fire on the approach to the airfield. Neither of the crew managed to escape before the aircraft crashed.
Major harland Davis ws assigned to the 435th TFS but the aircraft apparently belonged to the 497th. He had flown F-100's from lakenheath with the 48th TFW in 1962 and had survived a tour with the 1st ACS in South Vietnam in
1965 flying 283 missions in theA-1E. ( Thus we conclude that 1/Lt
Frederick m Koss was the gib or guy in back)

Stan Goldstein
RRVA General Secretary

What amazes me is how could the official records be so screwed up? In both 1LT Koss' and MAJ Davis' cases, the official records state that the plane crashed at sea, but such is not the case at all. Oh well, I'll inform Milly Sue of this. Thanks for your help.
