Charles Grant Herrick (December 21, 1918 – September 5, 1963) was a co-pilot for Air America during the Vietnam War.
On September 5, 1963, Herrick took off on a mission with fellow Americans, Eugene DeBruin and Joseph C. Cheney, Thai Pisidhi Indradat, Prasit Promsuwan and Prasit Thanee, and Chinese Y.C. To. During a flight over Laos, his C-46 aircraft was hit by ground fire and crashed about 2 kilometers from Tchepone on the Savannakhet Province.
Herrick and pilot Cheney were killed in the crash. DeBruin, Y.C. To, and the three Thai nationals parachuted to safety, but were immediately captured by the Pathet Lao.
