26 Mar 1966 [msh] 56-506 USAF 41 TCS C-130A
Damaged due to propeller reversal problem on landing at Tuy Hoa AB, South Vietnam when it veered off the runway and into a ditch. The aircraft was deemed repairable. A cable was strung through the crew entrance door and out the side window. An Army tank was used to pull the aircraft but the cable simply cut through the metal damaging the aircraft beyond economical repair. The aircraft was subsiquently used by the USArmy as an Officers' Club.
