I am the son of CW3 Maynard V. Reisinger. One of the factors in the crash was weather, but the primary cause was mechanical. Specifically, it was a fatal design flaw in the fuel cross feed system. This was neither placarded in the aircraft nor did it appear in the TM. I just felt this needed to be clarified. My father had thousands of hours of flight time in both fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft. He flew for the Air Force as a B-47 pilot for SAC, for the USCG flying ASR (Albatross), and flying 2 tours in Viet Nam, one rotary wing (UH-1) and the second fixed wing (U-21). I have it on good authority they were shooting the approach with one engine in op but lost the other engine and were unable to make it to the airport environment.
