I took these pictures at the AnKhe, Vietnam airport in September 1967 where this C-130 crashed when it was landing. If I remember right it blew a couple tires.

Sounds like this aircraft: http://www.c-130.net/aircraft-database/C-130/airframe-profile/6582/

Date of loss is June 17, 1967. So you may have photographed a few months after the mishap. But this aircraft linked above overran the runway on aborted take-off at An Khe, South Vietnam.\

Can we capture your photographs for this site?

An Khe was not a friendly place for Herks. We lost three there.

Hi Bob, and how about the crash of #62-1843 on 20 Dec 1965?

Personally I think 62-1843 and 64-0547 just flew into terrain but USAF said Combat Loss.

I also have a list of aircraft destroyed by the enemy on the ground in SVN.
