155th AHC, Ban Me Thuot
In April 69, Joker gunship 043 lost power on take-off from Ban Me Thuot and crashed into a school building.
Ed Monhollen, Aircraft Commander and Gun Team Lead, was badly injured. This ended his tour as he was med-evac'd out.
"Louie" Lewis was also injured. He returned to Ninh Hoa some time later sporting a broken arm.
Taken at Dong Ba Thin sometime in June 69.
Note the peace symbol hanging on the rocket sight --- the interpretation is thought to be either "Kill For Peace" or "I Want A Piece"
