    Events

    • Flew TA-4F at Marine Corps Air Station Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii

    • June 25, 1969
      Maj. C. B. Olsen and Maj. P. L. Elliott ejected safely before TA-4F BuNo 154642 crashed into Kaneohe Bay two miles out while on approach to MCAS Kaneohe.
      New Castle News, Thursday, June 26, 1969.

    • March 14, 1979
      Maj. Dean H. Matzko was killed when his engine failed on takeoff from Kaneohe. H&MS-24 TA-4F BuNo 154643.

      The bird was down for a tail pipe clamp and everyone was getting anxious because it was down a long time. I worked NORS (Non-Operational Ready Supply) for MAG-24 Group Supply at the time and found several. Four came in the same day. I carried one of the four to the maintenance folks who installed it immediately. The bird went up and came around for a touch and go on the flight line. As he climbed from the touch the bird split in two and crashed into the ocean, not the bay. The investigation placed the burden upon the tail pipe clamp.
