61-2387 1
The first USAF C-7 Caribou (61-2387) lost to enemy action was shot down by VC ground fire while on a resupply flight. A single bullet severed a fuel manifold causing the engines to stop through fuel starvation.  The pilot crash-landed the Caribou in a rice paddy near Binh Thuy and all the crew escaped.
