 Collection

Approximately seven linear feet of files concerning the crash of a C-5A Galaxy aircraft during Operation Babylift on 4 April 1975 near Saigon, during the closing days of the Vietnam War, killing 144 of the 301 passengers aboard. Most of those killed were Vietnamese orphans being airlifted out of Vietnam as this was the maiden voyage of Operation Babylift. The collection primarily contains court records and transcripts concerning the subsequent lawsuit filed by Friends For all Children, Inc. vs. Lockheed Aircraft Corporation contending that Lockheed, the manufacturer of the aircraft, was liable for the diagnostic examination costs of the children on board the flight. The organization of the collection follows the chronological order of the case. Box 1 contains the initial military investigations of the crash and the early consultations with the aviation exports for the law suit. Box 2 to Box 5 are the depositions and exhibitions from eyewitness, aviation exports, pediatricians, Lockheed Aircraft Corporation representatives, and etc. Box 6 and 7 are oversize boxes contain oversize deposition and technical reports.
