Special characteristics:
  • Unit Markings: 8 FW
Lost forty miles southeast of Kunsan AB, Korea taking the life of pilot, First Lieutenant Randolph E. Murff. It is speculated the aircraft struck an electrical pole before impacting a rice paddy. Cause was later determined to be due to spatial disorientation. The aircraft ended up in an inverted steep dive that was not recoverable (13,000 feet, 460 knots, 59° nose low, 165° left bank). The pilot ejected out of the envelope (one second before impact).
