        Capt. Charles Popok, USMC, immediately after launch, was attempting to join up on his section leader during rendezvous. It was estimated that he crashed when he got too low mistaking a star for his wingman and went into the water. No visual nor voice communication was ever received from Popok. The surface search was not successful.
        From Fred Shaffer.
        As far as Charlie goes we should have moved rendevous up a lot higher at night than 1000 feet. I think the flt leader would be at 250 knots, 30 degreee bank which forces anyone joining up into steeper angle of bank OK in daytime but not at night with no visible horizon when we should have been on instruments.
        From Andy Anderson
        Capt. James Gurtner USMC who was following in a section CCA approach to Coral Sea during a rain storm by Major Harvey Keeling USMC, the 324 XO. Keeling landed aboard the carrier safely and Gurtner went into the water behind the carrier on final approach. No visual nor voice communication was ever received from Gurtner. A surface search was not successful.
        From Fred Shaffer.
        My recollection that night is Major Keating was the flight ldr and got vertigo at altitude . Jim took the lead for the recovery and in the transition from 1000 feet to 500 where gear and flaps were extended (by radio calls). Keating overran Jim and may have said I lost you. My best quess is that Jim looked away from the instruments while all the speed , altitude, and configuration changes taking place and decended into the ocean. It was a terrible dark night and radio altimeter and autopilot would have been a big help.

      • 1973:
        VMA-324 A-4, Bu No 158163 Crashed in Greys Hill, SC Just West of USMCAS Beaufort. It is a more rural then residential area. It landed on a (trailer) Mobile Home, only one day after the resident family moved out. The Pilot was Lt. Coleman. It's not visible from this photo, but the horizontal stabilizer was in the extreme nose up position. The cause of crash was a runaway stabilizer, which is controlled by an electric motor driven screw actuator. Lt Coleman fought the stick trying to keep the Sky Hawk from wanting to go into a loop and ejected safely when he realized he was not going to archive stabilized flight. I was there. If I remember correctly it was 1973."

      • As luck would have it, I was the Safety Officer in VMA-324 when that accident occurred. The Naval Safety Center assigned one of their highly experienced investigators to assist in the investigation. I learned a lot from him and we had an open door to NARF Pensacola for their assistance during the mishap reconstruction. The cause officially listed was run-away nose up trim on take-off, but the aircraft wreckage was destroyed by fire to such an extent that physical evidence was not conclusive.
        The pilot indicated that the aircraft pitched up immediately after liftoff (probably about the time he raised the gear and flaps) and he was not able to push the stick forward and hold it there long enough even with two hands to get the nose down. Whenever he took his left hand off the stick to use the elevator over-ride lever, the nose would pitch up again, so he used the rudder to get the nose down in a series of wingover type maneuvers. I think the aircraft made one or more 360 degree turns before he had enough and decided to eject.
        As I recall, the A-4M was light loaded (slick - no tanks or racks) so the acceleration would have been pretty spectacular. The pitch up from a run-away nose up trim failure would have been significant also in a light loaded, accelerating aircraft. We did some experimentation with nose up trim controllability (above 10,000 ft of course) during and after the investigation and the airplane was pretty much uncontrollable even with full forward stick above about 200-220 kts with the flaps up. Reducing power and lowering the gear & flaps to full helped a lot. I don't think the mishap pilot had a chance to experiment too much since he was never above about 500 ft and things happened pretty quick. He did not recall reducing power or lowering the flaps to full.
        Some of you may recall that in the "old Days"(1960's) the A-4 had a control stick extender button which was used when the flight controls were disconnected in the event of a hydraulic failure. This allowed the pilot to pull the stick up about 6 more inches and gave him additional mechanical advantage to control the roll. As you may imagine, many pilots found this feature to be a novelty to be exercised frequently during periods of boredom. In order for the stick extension trick to work, the wires going up the inside of the stick were extra long, with a loop folded within the stick. These wires which controlled - among other things... TRIM - were not intended to be "exercised" routinely, rather only infrequently in an emergency situation. Well at some point (Late 60's, early 70's) the Fleet started experiencing intermittent or uncommanded trim anomalies which were traced to shorting of these wires. Thus this feature was disabled. The wires however continued to be looped in the stick. (The Safety Center guy told me all about that history) The best guess was that for some unknown reason there was a short in the trim wires in the stick causing a run-away nose up.
        As all A-4 drivers know, the elevator trim actually moves the entire horizontal stabilizer, so the effect of the trim setting is pretty spectacular as airspeed builds. Douglas Aircraft Corp. recognized this and installed a manual override/trim lever on the left console behind the throttle. (side note: during the investigation I learned that the over-ride switch was the same one used in several Douglas WWII piston aircraft such as the SBD. It was almost indestructible). The Mishap board determined that the most probable cause for the mishap was run-away nose up trim and that since the aircraft accelerated so rapidly the aircraft was in extremis almost immediately when the pilot raised the gear and flaps. They also concluded the pilot followed proper procedure by using the over-ride but the stick force was too great for the pilot to hold the lever long enough to get the desired effect before he released the lever and put both hands back on the stick, where upon the trim ran away again. I think most A-4M pilots have experienced this drastic trim change requirement during the (infrequent) opportunities we had to fly the A4-M in the slick configuration.
        Hindsight being what it is, we decided that reducing some power, lowering the gear and full flaps would have helped control the pitch. Keeping the airspeed below 200 kts was considered essential. Deploying the RAT was also discussed.
        The pilot was credited with staying with the aircraft until it was pointed away from most of the houses. The fact that he stated he was unable to keep the stick full forward with only one hand was significant because he was a pretty strong individual, first name Mike, was a football player for Pitt I believe. He was a capable and conscientious pilot. His wife was a nurse and he got out of the USMC after his first tour was up. I'll try to find his last name in my 324 stuff. He was a 1/Lt and I think he was the Flight line Officer. I also think he was on a post maintenance test flight, but maintenance was not considered a cause.
        I think the aircraft took off from runway 36, it crashed in the back yard of a lot with a trailer in the Gray's Hill community. The trailer was either burned or destroyed. No one was killed or injured in the mishap. Your photo shows the horizontal stab in an up position.
        I hope this answers your questions. Let me know if you need more info, etc
