Roy Spencer Blind Bat Pilot-Vietnam A Crew of Heros On 15 May 1966, Major George W. Jensen, pilot; Capt. Marshall Tapp, co-pilot; then 1st Lt. George Thompson, navigator; SSgt. James Preston, load master; Sgt. James Williams, flight engineer; A2C Kenneth McKenney, aerial gunner; SSgt. William Madison, aerial gunner; Major Lavern Reilly, observer; and two unidentified South Vietnamese crewman comprised the crew of an AC47D gunship, call sign "Spooky 10." The gunship departed Ubon Air Base, Thailand on a 6-hour single aircraft armed visual reconnaissance mission to search out and destroy any enemy targets of opportunity they found along two known arteries of the infamous Ho Chi Minh Trail in the Steel Tiger sector of Laos. If time and fuel permitted, they were to investigate a new route suspected of being used by the enemy.
Major Jensen established radio contact with the airborne command and control aircraft giving their status and position. The pilot transmitted again several hours later, stating situation normal, but giving no position. The aircraft's last known position was over the rugged jungle covered mountains of the Lao panhandle.
When the gunship failed to return to the base as scheduled, an aerial search was conducted beginning at first light on 16 May. The search operation continued throughout the day, but failed to locate any sign of Spooky 10 or its crew. Further, no parachutes were sighted and no emergency beepers heard. At the time the formal search was terminated, all 8 Americans and the 2 ARVN aboard Spooky 10 were listed Missing in Action.
