Henry Wildfang talks about the crash of 813 on 10 February 1968. This is an honor for him to tell me about it because I understand he never does interviews about the crash.

Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon every day. It's always useful to read content from other authors and use a little something from their web sites.

Hmm it seems like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips for newbie blog writers? I'd genuinely appreciate it.

Thank you Alan. I enjoy listening to Mr. Wildfang. He was one of the greatest men I ever had the privilege and pleasure to fly with... My NCOIC MGYSGT George Pierre, somehow knew that I would learn from such a great man. I still remember his words to me as a young cherry boy sahn navigator..."Do your duty, and ask for divine direction." Some months later I remember telling a pilot , our XO, a Lt. Col.; who had a USMC sense of humor, on the dogleg into Cabanatuan in the Philippines, "Turn right at the next cloud to a compass heading of 240." And when he did we were right on course and the TACAN and VOR lined up and he looked at me; shook his head and just grinned...AXM

chap duex. Ended up homeless and without a brain in 2001. I regained half a brain, so now I have half a beautiful mind to try to do better things...My favorite bumper sticker when homeless was ,
Long story short, NYS Family Court made me a federal felon, so I walked away. (Ran like hell actually).

J.H.Klice ---I just got caught in the surf and wound up here on this site. 252 12/69-05/70 and 152 6/70-6/71 somehow got nicknamed "Jesus" in ichi-go-ni--- Flew as Navigator in training with Sir Henry Wildfang at Cherry Point...For some reason MGYSGT George Pierre arranged my fast track training so I flew with CWO4 Wildfang often??? I still remember his words to me. "DO YOUR DUTY, AND JUST ASK FOR DIVINE DIRECTION... " All aircrew on Hercs were great men, and unsung heroes to many we helped

Flew with and worked with a lot of great folks during the early 70s at VMGR 252. I flew with "Gunner" a few times as a 1st Mech and I can honestly say that I would fly to hell and back with him. Clear three......Three's Clear Sir!

Just stumbled upon this site a few days ago and it has brought back a lot of memories.

Thank you and keep up the good work!

Henry is a great guy but I think this was a shoot down rather than a crash.

I doubt if 'Gunner' Wildfang will remember me but I flew as his FE and First Mech on many flights during the early 70's. Shortly after I became qualified as an FE, I was put on a flight with the Gunner. He was known for not using a checklist and would often take his seat and without much comment say, 'Clear 3'. Everyone had to be ready. In this case, Gunner got on board, took his seat and turned to me - obviously nervous (even though I arrived early to make sure I was ready) and asked quietly - Smittie, what do you say - should we use the checklist? As we taxied out, I could see all the guys in the flight shack waiting in the door way, looking at us. I am sure they were surprised that Gunner did not throw me out. He was exceptionally supportive on the entire trip. As we returned, I was walking around the aircraft when he stepped off. We were parked almost directly in front of the flight shack. With everyone watching he came up to me, shook my hand and thanked me for a great flight. 'I'll fly with you anytime Smittie'. Whether he meant it or not was irrelavent, he was making a point in front of the guys in the shack. He and I flew together several times after that and I always enjoyed the flights, especially when we would carry some general that he would invite to take the right seat. For the rest of the trip, they would talk about the old days and I sat there enjoying every minute.

Great site. Keep it up.

Hi Guys:

I really don't remember the full bureau numbers of the Herks anymore with two or three exceptions; 149798, 149811. 812 and 813. However, I do remember some amazing times while flying in them and working on them. I also remember with utmost respect CWO-4, and I think he retired at the rank of Major, Henry Wildfang. Before the loss of 813 I had heard it said that Mr. Wildfang didn't believe the Pilot's Hinged Window could be used as an exit. If this was true, I know he changed his mind on the 10th of February, 1968.
