Panel 31E Line 012
On 30 Nov 1967, an HMM-362 UH-34D (BuNo 148810) disappeared during a flight from Marble Mountain Air Field to Phu Bai with the loss of four crewmen:
Major Donnie L. Darrow, Lebanon, MO, pilot;
1stLt Anthony E. Kisucky, Chicago, IL, copilot;
Cpl George A. Bird, Savannah, GA, crewman; and
Cpl William B. Hays, Baton Rouge, LA, crewman.
Since the wreckage could not be located and there was no positive evidence regarding what had happened to the four crewmen, they were classed as Missing in Action and remained in that status for almost a year:
"On 22 November 1968 the wreckage of a UH-34D was found at 16 NM east of Phu Bai (ZD 150050) by the 1st ARVN Division, 154th Regiment. The wreckage was identified as an HMM-362 aircraft missing since 30 November 1967. The remains of 4 crewmen were found and removed to the mortuary at Da Nang."
