He was flying a KC-135 when they had a mid air with a B-52 during refueling. I was there when they both came in after the collision. Both from Mather out of Sacramento. CA.
It was completely covered up and nothing ever said of it.
The B52 had nukes on it and so, it never happen. I put the new tail back on the B52 a month or so later. The KC was fixed by a crew from Tinker AFB. The wing was torn off from the #4 engine outboard.
There was only four or five feet of the original left after the mid-air.

Is it possible that some his special loading assignments during his 4yrs actually put him in contact with Agent Orange?

I was stationed at Castle AFB in Merced California for the entire 3 years after school at Chanute. I did a TDY at Kadena from June through November of 1968. I usually road on the Launch truck, and was on it for the 12 hour day shift the day of the big crash. I have read the reports and still wonder why the pilot did not rotate after S1. I guess he sensed something about the power. The reports indicated no system failures or loss of power, but you never know the whole story unless you were flying the big BUF.
I went to work for the phone company after discharge in 1970. I eventually retired from ATT/Lucent in 1998 as an engineer. Living now in Carlsbad, CA.
Those were the good old days.

Comments->:Hello, I am not a pilot just an air-enthusiast from Russia. Sorry for my bad English!

Probably B-52 is the best strike aircraft of the XX century. I especially interested in B-52 early variants and I have questions about the oldest "Buff"`s avionics.

I cannot register on forum for technical reasons. The system is not accept password. So, I hope anybody will answer my question in e-mail

All the books I had read (Boyne, Davis & Tornborough, Aerofax series) don`t consist any information about early search and navigation radars of B-52.

In which B-52 variants had been installed the following radars???

AN/APS-23
AN/APS-27
AN/APS-64
AN/APS-81
AN/APS-104
AN/APS-108
AN/APN-170
AN/APQ-39


In which B-52 variants had been installed the following navigation system???

AN/ASQ-9
AN/ASQ-16
AN/ASQ-45

Best wishes to all Stratofortress pilots! Your great plane became a symbol of USAF power and it was the main threat for our air defence for decades

Put on 30-min alert as nukes were downloaded and conventional bombs put in all night while headquarters was cutting our orders to deploy. The base closed in 1968 and they sent 1/3 of the wing with the B-52s to Guam. Spent the last year of my enlistment there. Watched 2 52s crash there, one exploded over the flightline and the other banked to starboard after takeoff and nosedived into the Mariana Trench. All souls aboard both aircraft lost. Really admired all crewmembers. Loved those bombers.

Maintained the Bomb Navigator recording camera and the strike camera located just behind the bomb bay. Enjoyed being part of SAC and working on the B-52s. Been back to Pease in the 90s after base closing...most everything torn down now a business park with a brewery close to the main gate. Very Sad!!

We really appreciated the responce to all the DREAMBOOK
recipients.
It's difficult to sit here helplessly( as family of a VETERAN) & not able to contact those VIETNAM ERA military BUDS & ASSOCIATES they once knew & stood shoulder to shoulder with.
The side effects of AGENT ORANGE & other HERBICIDES....
play a role in our love ones lives.
Believe me just a phone call, an email, a card, is GREATLY
APPRECIATED. (I'm SURE YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE without being put on the spot)
Running into BUDS in our own cities & towns is very rewarding & calls from out of the area...
Does anyone live in OREGON ? who served in MINOT, N.D.
1964-1968 ?
Thank You for VOICING "ALL" your EXPERIENCES & concerns.
AIRCRAFT PILOTS, Administration Personnal,COOKS,Engineers,
Machanics, ETC.....
It's nice to stay in touch & connect with people & Buddies
who are in the know....share the LAUGHTER & MORE.
ANY REUNIONS PLANNED by any of you from MINOT, N.D.
during the VIETNAM ERA?
ANY WIVES that can share war stories....themselves or of their relatives ?

Anyone in the NCOA (non commission officers of America) & the DAV DISABLED VETERANS of America.
"Thank You All For Serving"

Resectfully

Many issues, like failed hydraulics for flaps or landing gear or like a hung bomb on the wing. But she always got us down to safety again.

Comments->: After my tour of duty was completed at U-Tapao, Thailand with the 635th SPS K-9 in 1973, in May 73, I returned state side to Bergstrum AFB, Austin, Texas PCS to det 1, 96th Bomb Wing SAC. On Arrival we had no aircraft and were moved TDY to other AF Bases. Myself along with four other airmen were sent to Andersen AFB, GUAM, I was assigned to the canine kennels to work kennel support. My job was to dispense medication to some and feed MSD to all other canines. I recall one dog that would keep his food pan and not give it up for anything. I cleaning the kennels and made sure dogs had water. We kept a log book and tried to keep things clean. I recall we had rented a car and drove around the Island. I recall a road that went down to the beach and happy we made down the long drop to the beach. Saw the Navy ships in port and some outstanding views. I recall a memorial where during WWII the US Marines had taken back the island a landing point. Old WWII guns could be found overlooking the town of Guam. My 6 Mo. tour was cut short after 4 Months and returned to Bergstrum AFB. On my return we had (2) B-52's and (2) KC-135, fly gas stations. If you ever go to GUAM, rent a car and drive around the island you will never forget, nor the wonderful scenic views, the kindness of the people away from the base. Take along a camera and swim suite. This was in 1973, wish I had kepted a Journal of all tours, address, units, bases and friends made along the way.
