F-106A 59-0101, 87th FIS KI Sawyer AFB MI, winter 1972 with Billy Marshall on the right side (legs showing) checking oil. 57-0101 crashed shortly after coming out of Phase Dock (no we didn't do it). After the crash the pieces were brought back to our hanger. I still have the small emergency generator door from the aft left side of the fuselage from that crash. [Bill Marshall collection]

    I was on an F-106 crash site near L'anse, MI in 1979(?). I was in the 410th SPS and was chosen to go with the recovery team to secure that crash site for several days. They all went to hotels and we (3 of us) camped at the site. It spun in like a frisbee and landed mostly intact. The entire nose and cockpit was burned to the intakes. 1 wing was burned (left I think) and the tail was snapped off. I believe the canopy was in a swamp and 2 airmen waded out to get it. The entire crash-site was relatively small.
