12 February 1970

Thursday night
12 February 1970

It’s now after midnight.  I helped write the schedule tonight.

We lost a bird today.  They were on a section TPQ and “dash 2” [second plane in a flight of two or more aircraft] apparently crashed for some unknown reason.

Neither the plane nor the crew have been found and they are listed as missing in action. 

The weather was very bad at the time so the lead aircraft lost sight of “dash two“.  The crew are very close friends of mine.  I can’t say who they are since they’re only “missing”. 

The search was called off at night fall and will resume in the morning.

I’m very tired from a long, sad day - so I’ll close.
