What was his name? Are you sure (I guess you must be) it was 1960 and not 1961? A plane from the 56th WRS crashed into a mountain on or about Sept. 1961 I used to fly regularly with the 56th, and am not aware of a crash in 1960. I am sure I would have heard of it. The one I do know of is the one in 1961, where the whole crew was killed after crashing into a mountain. The only person I know for sure that was aboard that flight was a M/Sgt Burgess.
