I was the crew chief for 5786 during that period. Wonderful aircraft. It had the LLLTV system (Low-level light TV) for lights-out night rescues. Really high tech for the time 40th ARRS

I was part of the 1550th and was flying along side 5786 when the accident occurred. One fine airmen lost and another severely wounded. Thankful their wasn't more loss of life as the plane had numerous airmen aboard. I think of SSgt Ford and Msgt Washington often.
