On March 15, 1962, Guam International Flight Service Station attempted to make radio contact with an outbound plane that had left several hours prior. Alarmingly, though, the operator received no response in question. But what could have happened to the craft that was carrying troops to Vietnam? Well, some began to suspect that sabotage was at play.
Yes, the fateful plane from the Flying Tiger Line had been chartered by the U.S. military to transport Army Rangers and Vietnamese soldiers to Saigon. The flight was scheduled to be a long one, although there would be several stops to refuel. And, sadly, it was during the leg between Guam and the Philippines that contact with the aircraft was lost.
