Memorial Picture "...KEITH, PhM Ellis...My Father, Ellis Keith, was a Pharmacist Mate during WWII, and flew on PBY's from the USS Tangier (AV-8), while she was in New Guinea, 1944, and USS Currituck (AV-7), during the Philipenes Invasion. I have had no success at finding out what squadrons were attatched to these two ships during 1944. Dad passed away in May 1956, of liver problems contracted while he served in the SW Pacific, and also had severe Battle Fatigue, or PTSD as us Nam Vets call it. Since I was only 8 years old when he passed on, I never really got to know much about him, and my Mother never talked about his wartime experiences. Any assistance would be of great help. If you also know of anyone that flew with these squadrons, I would appreciate being put in contact with them. Sincerely, Kenneth Keith delta_snipe@yahoo.com..." [01OCT2009]

It is a move that was necessary at that time but one that I regret to this day. I had already spent four years in the USN, from 1958 until 1962 but was just as proud to be a CONDOR. At that time we were one of only four combat ready squadrons on the East Coast. I was privileged to be on 2 deployments to NS Rota, Spain; one to NAS Bermuda; and the transition from P2V to P-3A at NAS Patuxent River, Maryland. I'd like to hear from old Shipmates..."

After serving in the Navy I relocated back to the SF Bay area and worked for several aerospace companies. On that day, April 12, 1973, (SEE: In Memorial for (VP-47) lost friends April 12, 1973) I was working at ZETA Labs in Mountain View, about a mile from the approach end of the NAS Moffett Field, California runways. I felt the building shake and then a rumble. I ran outside and saw the black smoke just behind some houses. I ran down the Bay Shore Frontage Road to the Sunnyvale Golf Course and to the burning aircraft. At first I could not understand what the situation was, the smoke was so thick that I could not see the P-3-V under the Convair 990. I saw some golfers trying to break in the cockpit windows of the 990 but the glass was too thick. Their clubs just bounced off the glass. I could see the pilots hanging from their seat belts but they were not moving. The golfers and I were very upset that they could not break in. I did not have anything that I could use for a club so I looked around but the heat was getting very bad. The firemen then arrived and took over and cut into the aircraft with a saw. As I walked back to work - to the Frontage Road - I saw some golfers playing tho as if nothing had happened! What die hards. Nobody has mentioned it but I think that the NAS Moffett Field crash crew drove their trucks right through the boundary fences of NAS Moffett Field - across both north and south bound lanes of US 101 and the median barrier between them and through all the fences to get to the crash site. They weren't fooling around! I remember that the local hospital had been prepared for receiving many crash victims but only one was brought in to the ER room! I returned to the crash site about two weeks later, the golf course had been restored so that I could not tell what had happened a few days earlier. God bless all of the crewman that were killed and the lone survivor of that tragedy. It will be 44 years since this has happened but I can recall it as if it had happened yesterday.
