At the time this aircraft was on loan to the 93rd FS. The flight was a photoflight with 86-0040 passing underneath another three-ship. The pilot lost visual contact for a brief period in which he scraped 86-0257 which lost its radome and radar pitching up and not being able to recover. The pilot, Maj. Daley, ejected safely.
Crashed onto the Avon Park Range about 50 miles south of Orlando, Florida. The aircraft was in a four ship formation on a gunnery training mission from Homestead Air Reserve Station. The pilot, Capt. Thomas M. Carr, was killed in the mishap, and no one was in the backseat. Cause of the crash was human error, with improper distance with the other aircraft in the formation.
