55-0044 Prometheus
# 3 & 4 props and Engine gearcases shot off Dec.1971. I was there when this incident occured. Apparently an anti-aircraft round struck # 3 Engine Propeller & gearcase, shearing off (Rotational Clockwise Turn) cut #4 Propeller & gearcase. After speaking with ground maintenance personnel, it was learned that # 2 Engine's oil pressure dropped to "0" and eventually seizing the engine at touchdown. # 1 engine appeared to have been extrememly overstressed from its engine mounts. Sadly, after so many tweaks and adjustments, Prometheus was shot down by SA-2 SAM over Tchepone Laos on 28 March 1972.
