    Ran off the runway at Salt Lake City International Airport caused by a main gen/CSD failure. Had extensive damage to the right wing and fuselage. The wing was replaced from a block 10 aircraft. An interesting note to this repair is that the fuselage was reassembled on wooden cradles, with no precision alignment. The misalignment was discovered when the boresight was accomplished after repair, the fuselage was "twisted" to the right approx .250" from the F.S. 189 bulkhead forward. The gun and HUD mounts had to be moved .250" to compensate. It actually turned out to be the 466th TFS's best bomber after that.
