PAGO PAGO DISASTER:
Pan A m Jetcrashes; 91 killed

By AP and Reuter
CLARK AIR BASE, Philippines
- Gerald Kosh, the American
"observer" captured in fighting
between China and South Viet-
nam over the tiny Paracel Is-
lands, walked to freedom yester-
day after 10 days in Chinese cap-
tivity.'
He was flown to Clark Air Base
in the Philippines for a medical
checkup. Kosh, 27, was in "good
physical condition although he ad-
mitted he feels weak and fatigu-
ed," said Lt. Cmdr. Milton Bak-
er, who flew with Kosh from
Hong Kong to the Philippines.
"How long Kosh stays in the
hospital at Clark, 45 miles north
of Manila, will depend on his
physical condition," Baker add-
ed.
EARLIER REPORTS from both
Chinese officials in Peking and
U. S. officials in Hong Kong
said Kosh was ill with hepa-
titis.
Wearing a standard Chinese
worker's uniform of dark blue
tunic and trousers, Kosh walked
50 yards across the Lo Wu bridge
.between China and Hong Kong,
followed almost immediately by
five South Vietnamese, also cap-
tured in the island fighting.
Kosh, a U. S. Defense Depart-
ment employe from Lafayette
Hill, Pa., said, "Thank you" to a
pool reporter who expressed wel-
come at the border crossing
point.
LESS THAN an hour after his
release, he was on his way to

the Philippines and the Vietna-
mese were on a plane for Sai-
gon, where they were greeted
by about 2;000 cheering Vietna-
mese.
On the one and a half hour
flight to Clark Kosh was in good
spirits, talking to crewmen and
doctors and nurses aboard the
C9 Nightingale evacuation plane.
IN O T H E R developments:
South Vietnam has landed navy
commandoson the disputed
Spr'atley Islands in the South
China Sea to face a possible Chi-
nese assault, military sources
said yesterday.
China and South Vietnam both
claim -sovereignty over the is-
lands,which may lie amidst an
undersea oilfield.
The heavily armed comman-
dos, equipped with food and med-
icines for a long stay, were land-
ed by warship yesterday on the
barren islands some 425 miles
southeast of Saigon.
THEY PROVIDED reinforce-
ments for South Vietnamese

troops already stationed there
since President Nguyen Van
Thieu announced last Septem-
ber that he was incorporating
the islands into South Vietnam's
Phuochouy province.
Eleven days ago,' Chinese and
South Vietnamese forces fought
a two-day battle over the near-
by Paracel islands, which both
countries also claim. This ended
with Chinese air and naval at-
tacks driving off the South Viet-
namese troops.

NEW YORK (A) - A Pan
American World Airways 707 jet
crashed and burned during a
landing approach at Pago Pago,
Samoa, yesterday, and 91 per-
sons were presumed killed, the
airline said.
Rescuers used aircraft land-
ing lights to search for surviv-
ors among crushed banana trees.
The pilot was in radio contact
with the Pago Pago tower at the
time of the crash but it was not
known if he gave any distress
signals.
THE FLIGHT originated in
Auckland, New Zealand and was

to end in Los Angeles after stops
at Pago and Honolulu.
The airline said numerous
calls were received in its Los An-
geles office from relatives and
friends of persons believed
aboard.
The cockpit complement in the
10-member crew was San Fran-
cisco-based, the airline said.
Service crew members were
from Hawaii.
THE PAN AM account said the
plane crashed 1,000 yards short
of the runway and caught fire.
The time was eight minutes be-
fore midnight in Samoa, Wed-

nesday 6:52 a.m. EDT yesterday.
Most passengers were believ-
ed to be from New Zealand and
western Samoa.
Pago Pago is on one of the
seven islands of American Samoa
in the mid-Pacific. It lies a little
over a third of the way between
New Zealand and the Hawaiian
Islands.
