Good afternoon: I am Karen Weissenback Moen, widow of AFS Edward Weissenback, who along with Capt. Ritter, FO Townley, and AFD Khamphanh Saysongkham, remains listed as MIA (AA #293 crash).

The American families are interested in trying to locate the family of Mr. Khamphanh Saysongkham, who we believe was a Thai national. We may have news to share with them within the next year or two. We are wondering if there is a way to put a notice on the Air America website and/or in the next newsletter that we are trying to locate the family of Mr. Khamphanh Saysongkham and, if whereabouts are known, to please contact either Phillipe Ritter or me. Working through the Air American Association may offer the best chance of trying to locate Mr. Saysongkham's family members.


Thank you for considering our request. Karen Moen () and Phillipe Ritter ()

aahomeimage Air America's tenure in Asia began when Civil Air Transport (CAT) crossed the river into Shanghai in 1946. It ended on a rooftop in downtown Saigon in 1975. First in, last out. That was CAT and Air America in China, Korea and in Southeast Asia. The Air America Association is composed of former employees of CAT, Air America, their families and their affiliates. This is their web site. Its purpose is to capture that experience and present it in historical context. To learn more about CAT and Air America, you can also browse or search the CAT/Air America Archive and Vietnam Archive collections.
