    I served with Prize Crew in Soc Trang from Tet 1968 until QT2PCII returned to the U.S. in May(?)'68. Prize Crew consisted of Lockheed contractor/builders, most notably Wilbur Curtis and Dale Stith, as well as a multi-service flight crew and ground crew. Flying only at night, at low altitude (typically 1,000' or lower), QT2PC's muffled motor, modified glider body, 1st-generation Starlight 'scope and radar-absorbent paint helped to "seize the night" from 'Charlie.' Further evolutions of QT2PC's design led to the YO-3A, Q-Star and further refinements and advancements in stealth technology.
