 Additional Information
Last Known Activity

   On 19 September 1966, two Air Force members were killed while returning from a strike mission.  Their B-57 was number two in a flight of two and was flying in trail a mile behind lead aircraft.  When lead attempted voice contact and received no answer, he pulled up, reversed course, and observed a column of smoke and the wreckage of number two.  Lead aircraft did not see or hear ground fire in the area; however, rescue aircraft experienced light ground fire in recovering the remains.
