Mishaps  VP-50 Mishap - April 17th, 1980
I was a witness to the crash (SEE: In Memorial for lost VP-50 friends...April 17th, 1980). I was a young teacher in Pago, on a 2-year GAS (Gov't of American Samoa) contract, and we were all standing on the green with our students. It happened right in front of us. My memory is a bit unclear now about the order of events: I thought the bang and the flames happened when the plane hit the cable, but yes, it might have been just a couple of seconds before it snagged the cable. Somehing came off the plane. The P-3 immediately veered down and to the right, and the pilot had only about 7 seconds, I'd say, before coming down, just out of our direct line of sight. I think he put it in the best possible spot. A few of us teachers walked up the driveway of the Governor's residence, on the hill overlooking the Rainmaker Hotel - which we ordinarily would not have dared to do - and there was the Governor standing by himself watching the fire, with a heck of a worried expression on his face. A sad day, I still see it clearly.

Shipmate  PAULES, AE2 James
I served with VQ-2 (1970-07/1972). I got married on my way from Naval Weapons Test Squadron (WST) at NAS Patuxent River, Maryland to NS Rota, Spain and brought my wife along to Spain. She was a freshman in college and picked up a few courses from the University of Maryland while we were there. I did one deployment on an aircraft carrier to support the "whales" and then decided I’d rather be an air crewman. I got qualified as the aviation electrician’s mate (i.e. cook) and an ECM Operator. VQ-2 was transitioning from the Super Connies to the P-3’s and since I wasn’t going to make the Navy my career, I got assigned to one of the Super Connie crews. I made several deployments to Athens and NAS Key West, Floridat and even got to go on a NATO exercise to Iceland and Norway … even got my "Blue Nose" card for going above the Arctic Circle. After I got out of the Navy I used my GI Benefits to get an Electrical Engineering degree from Penn State and then worked 33+ years at Three Mile Island.

Shipmate  LUEHRMAN, PT3 David
I served with VP-662 (merged with VP-661 during Cuban missile crisis 1961) at NAS Anacostia, Washington, D.C. and called to Active Duty with VP-661/VP-662/VP-663 late 1961 and based at NAS Patuxent River, Maryland. I was AO3 (aviation ordnance), spent much of the time hanging rockets on P2V wings (believe ours were P2V-5 version) and since we had many PO3's due to merging squadrons, I wanted to be in the warm hangar instead of the flight line. Transferred rating to PT3 and deployed to NAS Guantanamo Bay, Cuba with squadron to fly in nose bubble monitoring removal of Russian missiles from Cuba. Many exciting interactions with Russian freighters, flying around them at low altitudes in the P2V to photo deck cargo. After return to reserve duty, transferred to air intelligence squadron at NAS Los Alamitos, California.

Mishaps  VP-117 Mishap - July 1st, 1945
I recently met with the family of ARM2c Fisher, a member of the crew of a PB4Y-1 Liberator, BuNo 38907, lost 1 July 1945. Mr. David Stark contributed a photo of the crew to your website. The crew names associated with #8 and #9 are switched. Leonard Cornelius Fisher is actually #9 and Peter Alfred Hourcade is actually #8 in the photo. Is it possible to note the error so the two crewmembers are correctly identified. ARM2c Fisher's family provided me with a photograph that confirmed the identity of ARM2c Fisher. Thank you.

Memorial  BLACKWELL, Garnett H.
My Dad, Garnett Blackwell, Sunday, August 11, 2013 in the Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital in Roanoke, Virginia. Dad served onboard the USS Chandeleur (AV-10) during WWII, sailed back into San Francisco after the war was over, and got honorably discharged after arriving in San Francisco. A true hero. I am a Navy Retiree myself after 20 years service, transferring to the Fleet Reserve in 2001. I sailed into harms way many times, but after reading the history of USS Chandeleur (AV-10), the crew sure went through some tough times at war!
