Comments: In August 1977 an RF4C from Alconbury crashed near Lingen, Germany killing both crew members. At that time I was stationed at Soesterberg AB, The Netherlands and was sent to the crash site to identify and tag pieces of the aircraft and secure classified avionics equipment. I spent several days there with several others from our base in Holland. I still recall the smells of burnt, rotting flesh and soil soaked with JP4. I don't recall the names of the two crewmen, but I felt it was a severe honor to be a part of that team.

Comments: I served aboard "Doc" from 1972-1974. Made 2 WESPAC cruises. I worked in the personnel office. We referred to Piedmont as he. Wether this was official who knows. I did enjoy my time on "Doc". I am looking for a 1972 cruise book if anyone has an extra copy. Would love to hear from ex shipmates.
