I've been manually looking at all (well many) of the maps for the 100,000 Square Identification YB and can't find it.

An OV-1 hit the side of a mountain at the above coordinates and I'm trying to find the location for the OV-1 pilot's widow.

The OV-1 took off from Phu Hiep (home of the 225th Aviation surveillance Company) and never returned.

Can anyone help locate YB?
As you were.

Found it. Kelly's Where We Were had the Grid Zone Overlay that showed YB. It's in the Northwest corner of Kontum Province.

Found the map on Vietnam Center and Archive, Sheet 6538-1. It appears as though there's a hill at these coordinates that is 1651 Meters high, called Ngok Loak, which might be the hill/mountain the OV-1 hit.
