One of the Best

Eric was the best ACM F-4E IP I ever flew against. A great pilot, husband, father, and American.

A great friend

Eric Olver (not "Oliver") and I graduated from OTS together in November, 1969, and then graduated from Navigator School in August, 1970. We crossed paths often during our careers, lastly at Maxwell AFB in Air Command and Staff College. We both flew as WSOs in F-4s, with Eric going to Pilot school after his tour as WSO in the early 70s. Eric was a great friend that will always be remembered!

My Father

He died when I was 9 and now that I am getting close to retiring from the military myself, I realize I don't know much about him at work. Anyone who knew him then, please post and share. Thanks,

CPT Brian Olver

I was assigned to the crash investigation board as a maintenance advisor. I did not know Col Olver but through the investigation so many people spoke highly of him. I was one of the first on the crash seen arriving even before emergency vehicles. This was one of two crashes within a month apart at Shaw.
