November 1961: I was a plane captain in VMA-212 MAG-13, Kaneohe MCAS from 1961 to 1963. I was on duty the night of November 20, 1961 when two of our A4s had a mid-air over Kailua while returning from a run at the target island (Kahoolawe). One plane made it back with vertical stabilizer and rudder damage, the other plane went down in Kailua taking out two houses killing a six year old boy and the pilot. The pilot was Second Lieutenant William Wright. In reconstructing the pieces of the plane in a base hangar, it was evident that Lt. Wright survived the initial impact and could have ejected, but chose to stay with his airplane and tried to dead stick it over the town and into Kailua Bay. Unfortunately, it wasn't successful despite the heroic efforts of Lt. Wright. Norm Spilleth
