B-52 Crash Site

Patriot Wing Airmen braved sub-zero wind chills in north central Maine Jan. 17 to pay tribute to a B-52 aircrew that met death more than 50 years ago while on a training mission that originated from Westover. According to historical records and newspaper accounts, a nine-man aircrew assigned to the 99th Bombardment Wing at Westover, lifted off from the base for a training mission about noon on Jan. 24, 1963.
