The above images are of 1st Lieutenant Coley's O1-E FAC plane that did a nose dive over the end of the runway on Soc Trang Airfield on December 20 crashing into the drainage ditch next to the ammunition dump. First Lieutenant Coley and Donald Mollicone were the two crew members aboard. They were not stationed at Soc Trang, but stopped over for a short time, and were to fly  back to Bein Hoa.
