Mishaps  VP-51/VP-101 Mishap - March 3rd, 1943
I am a retired Army sergeant first class and the grandnephew of AOM2 Anthony Cortese, reported as missing on March 5, 1943. His death card lists him as presumed dead on December 10, 1945, and having been assigned to VP-102. I believe this is incorrect, and that he may have been onboard a PB4Y-1 with bureau number 31946 or 31947, both of which were lost on March 3, 1945 along with 31950 belonging to VP-101. Pacific Wrecks lists all three, but no crew names for 31946 or 31947. If anyone can point me to the crew rosters, I'd really like to help close the loop on this important part of my family's history. My grandmother died never knowing what happened to her brother, and she was a Navy hospital corpsman when he went missing.

Memorial  VP-50 March 21st, 1991
I would like to post a memory for the aviators/airmen of VP-50 Crews 2 & 11 (SEE: In Memorial for lost friends March 21st, 1991). One of those killed was Dorsey Owens Jr. He was my classmate at NAS Pensacola, Florida, we were at Memphis together (he was an AT I believe; I was an AW), and classmates at NAS North Island, San Diego, California (SERE) and NAS Moffett Field, California. Just a couple nights before, a bunch of us were drinking coffee and playing cards. At night's end, we shook hands, told each other "be safe" and left. It was the last time I saw him. He was a good friend and he is still missed today. He was only 19 and it was his rookie flight.

Mishaps  VP-10 Mishap - March 15th, 1973
I was on the VP-44 aircraft that found the crash site of the VP-10 Mishap (March 15th, 1973). I was on the AIRLANT NATOPS Team as the SS3 Evaluator. We had flown in the then numbered LD-2 the day before doing a tube NATOPS check. When I was in VP-10, six years before this mishap, this aircraft was numbered LD-6, and it was assigned to my crew, Crew 6. I had many flight hours in this aircrft.

Mishaps  VP-19 Mishap - September 4th, 1954
My father, ADC Paul Roger Mulhollem, was aboard VP-19 P2V Neptune that was shot down over the Sea of Japan by Russian Migs during The Cold War on September 4th, 1954. 10 were aboard, 9 survived and ENSIGN Paul Reid, who we consider a hero, was lost when he push out "another life raft" and "ordered" my dad out of the sinking plane. He said "Get out Chief - that's an order" and as he did so relunctantly, the plane went down "like a rock" taking ENSIGN Paul Reid with it. We have been in touch with the Pilot's daughter, who was also looking for answers about ENSIGN Paul Reid, and the whereabouts of his surviving family members. I recently (yesterday) received an answer to an e-mail from one of his rescuers' (although ordered back due to too many Russian Migs being in the area) remembers the incident well, and gave me an address listed in a Ship's records (found in the ships book called "A Tale of a Tiger") as 3220 Burlington Blvd, Arlington Virginia. If anyone has a copy of the book, the daughter of Captain John Wayne (yes that was his name) would like to know about it. So please email me if you have any information that would allow her and us (Britts Mom is still living in Oceanside, CA age 94 and of sound mind, and body, golfing as often as she can find a partner) to thank the family of ENSIGN Paul Reid for saving ADC Paul Roger Mulhollem's life.

Mishaps  VP-47 Mishap - April 12th, 1973
I just re-read the account of the VP-47 P-3 midair with the NASA Convair (SEE: VP-47 - In Memorial for lost friends April 12, 1973) and something jumped out at me. The account mentioned that the NASA pilot didn't question the change to runway 32L. In his defense (not that it's acceptable), our common practice was to allow NASA 711 to land on 32L whenever we could because, after landing, it was a quick turnoff at the intersection near the NASA ramp and a straight shot to the ramp. But what keeps sticking in my mind is a memory that one of the pilots simply asked "Are we cleared to land?", without using a call sign, and the controller, assuming it was the P-3 on final for the left side and said (again without using a call sign) "Cleared to land 32 left." Was it the NASA pilot that asked that? I guess we'll never know, but that's the way I remember it. Since this incident continues to haunt me, I've searched for a transcript of the incident, but can't find it. I just pray that the aviation community in general, and the ATC community in particular, learned a hard lesson from this tragedy.
