I don't know if this is the right place for this question, but I guess it's related to aviation right?
My grand uncle was a pilot in the South Vietnam Air Force. He served from 1964 to 1968. He flew F-5s and A-37s and crashed on a A-37.
Being I student pilot now, I very much want to look back and find out what really caused his crash. My family fled Vietnam from the Communists when I was too young. I only remember seeing his Air Force Death Certificate in English which I didn't understand a word in it back then. I was told from multiple sources that his A37 blew up before taking off, and that he crashed soon after take-off... But I always wanted to see the actual result of an investigation if any.
Do you think it is even possible to look up records for those dead ones who served for the South of Vietnam? (since I know they are considered forgotten in the history of the Vietnam War)
The information about the accident that I can remember: Date and time of the accident: 12/10/1968 9AM Location: Pleiku Airbase, Vietnam Aircraft: A-37 Name of pilot: Hai, Le Nguyen (Lê Nguyên Hải) Pilot's rank: Lieutenant Pilot's DOB: 12/09/1941
