In October 1984, MH-53 Pave Low crews and aircraft of the 20th SOS deployed to the Republic of the Philippines for Exercise "Cope Thunder 85-1". The deployment ended tragically during the exercise when a MH-53 Pave Low, serial number 73-1647, impacted a ridgeline in Crow Valley, near Clark AB, Philippines, during a night TF mission in a heavy rain squall, crashed and was destroyed killing its crew. Sergeant Lincks was among the crew that were killed.


From Bob New:
I remember the first time Paco came into the Gunners section. He introduced himself as "Max Lincks, but I like to be called Paco". He became Paco from that point on. In a short time he became an Instructor Gunner. He was the type of guy you could rely on to have your back if there was a need. I think of him and the other gunners often, and the time we spent together flying. In talking to Rich Davis about this time in our lives as gunners. He said "We were family". Paco was family
