Call of Cthulhu: Operation ARC LIGHT One Off
A one-off Call of Cthulhu session set in a fictionalised late-1960's Vietnam, involving a party of United States Air Force 'Pararescuemen', tasked to locate a missing aircraft and recover its crew, written by Jules.

Pancake (team maniac)
Doc (team trauma surgeon)
Babyface (team mascot)
Suplex (team radioman)
The lost bird is a Boeing B-52 Stratofortress, which is about 160ft long, 40ft high, with a wingspan of around 185ft, all of which are good reasons for it not to go missing in the first place.
The B-52 is part of secret 'ARC LIGHT' bombing operations (of dubious legality) around and over the border of Vietnam into Cambodia.
The six missing crew members have been identified to the party as:
Captain John Adams, Commander
Captain Robert Bloch, Co-pilot
Major Alfred Chadwick, Electronic Warfare Officer & Backup Pilot
Captain Will Durrant, Navigator
Major Fred Edwin, RADAR Navigator
Senior Sergeant Bill Fish, Gunner
One of the missing crew may or may not be the son of a U.S. Senator, although that information has not been confirmed.
Regrettably, I started the recorder a few minutes into the session, after the party had safely parachuted into the Cambodian jungle. It is twilight and the weather conditions are poor; the PC's are dealing with heavy rain. Their first encounter is with a pair of locals carrying a large crate with Russian markings.
