ABOVE: I wanted to share a Memorial Programdated June 1970, for WO1 Lance Lofman (Age 22) from Miami, FL and SP4 Gary Pridgen (Age 21) from Kinston, AL.  I worked with Gary but didn't know Lance. 
Please post on the site  Gary Gill - '70 SP5 Mtnc PE Crew - 18th Avn. / Coatsville, PA

Comment: I saw the posting on WO Lance Lofgren (18th Avn/ '70). That was sad. I met him @ Otter school. He had taken leave to get married after flight school.  I learned about the accident when I was in the 54th. I was told that WO Bob Fabrick was the A/C and Lofgren was in the right seat when they had a bad bounce from a hard landing and the aircraft flipped and burned in Dak Pek, VN - Otter '55-3250' crash.  Carsten Hauge '70-71 WO Pilot 54th Avn.

Note:  Bob Fabrick - survived the 1970 crash in VN with burns.  He passed in 10/2012 in Concrete, WA / May he R.I.P.
