I was there the night of the accident ; I was living in on base housing when i was awakened by a loud sound ;as I had just returned from Nam and was living on pins and needles as it was ; when I arrived at my shop that morning I was told about the accident . the first thing that goes thru your mind is did I work on it recently ,relief to find out Pilot error.

The Old Sarge's designs are great but this one I think is outstanding!

Absolutely Wendy! I already approved your account.
Thanks Wendy, great info.
This patch was designed by Jerry Roth. He was also responsible for that great mural that used to be in the alert barn's lobby and the famous lithograph print. Great artist!
I have a photo I took of the under side of 236's wing after both jets landed. It has the imprint of 010's nose cone and is probably the only photo of it taken. I'd love to share it here, with the administrator's permission, of course. It's part of these plane's common history!
