Accident description Last updated: 8 January 2017 Accident description Status: Date:Friday 4 April 1975 Time:ca 16:30 Type:Silhouette image of generic C5 model; specific model in this crash may look slightly different Lockheed C-5A Galaxy Operator:United States Air Force - USAF Registration:68-0218 C/n / msn:500-0021 First flight: Engines:4 General Electric TF39 Crew:Fatalities: 5 / Occupants: 17 Passengers:Fatalities: 150 / Occupants: 311 Total:Fatalities: 155 / Occupants: 328 Airplane damage:Destroyed Airplane fate:Written off (damaged beyond repair) Location:4 km (2.5 mls) NE of Saigon-Tan Son Nhat International Airport (SGN) ( Vietnam) Phase:En route (ENR) Nature:Military Departure airport:Saigon-Tan Son Nhat International Airport (SGN/VVTS), Vietnam Destination airport:Angeles City-Clark Air Base (CRK/RPMK), Philippines Narrative: C-5 Galaxy 68-0218 was the initial mission of Operation Babylift to bring Vietnamese orphans to the US in the few remaining days before the Republic of Vietnam fell. The C-5 departed Saigon-Tan Son Nhut Airport at 16:03. Twelve minutes after takeoff, after climbing through FL230, there was what seemed to be an explosion as the lower rear fuselage was torn apart. The locks of the rear loading ramp had failed, causing the door to open and separate. A rapid decompression occurred. Control and trim cables to the rudder and elevators were severed, leaving only one aileron and wing spoilers operating. Two of the four hydraulic systems were out. The crew wrestled at the controls, managing to keep control of the plane with changes in power settings by using the one working aileron and wing spoilers. The crew descended to an altitude of 4,000 feet on a heading of 310 degrees in preparation for landing on Tan Son Nhut's runway 25L. About halfway through a turn to final approach, the rate of descent increased rapidly to 4,000 feet per minute. Seeing they couldn't make the runway, full power was applied to bring the nose up. At 50 feet, the throttles where retarded to idle and the C-5 touched down in a rice paddy. Skidding about 1,000 feet, the aircraft again became airborne for a half mile before hitting a dike and breaking into four parts. The cargo compartment was completely destroyed, killing 141 of the 149 orphans and attendants. Only three of 152 in the troop compartment perished. Five of the flight crew, three of the medical team, and three others lost their lives, but 173 of the 328 aboard survived. Probable Cause: Classification: Cargo door failure Sources: » Air Force Magazine, Aug. 1991
