Subject: C-130 crash at An Khe, June 17, 1967

I witnessed the crash of the combat loaded C-130 that crashed on takeoff at An Khe in the evening of June 17, 1967. I helped others pull some of the injured soldiers out of the plane until the front of the plane started burning. Aware that the plane was combat loaded with 105/155 and small arms ammunition, and had landed on an ammunition dump, we finally had to stop pulling the guys out. I think there were about 60 on board and do not recall how many we pulled out. It was a horrible experience that I will never forget.
