The fourth O-2 lost during June was an O-2B psychological warfare aircraft (call sign Rage 3) or ‘leaflet bomber’ from the 9th SOS. The aircraft was directed towards a group of enemy troops 20 miles north of Nha Trang, probably to use its loudspeakers to broadcast messages designed to incite defection, rather than to drop leaflets. The aircraft was shot down near Ninh Hoa and, once again, both the crew died in the crash.
