22 onboard. 9 died including Corporal Rory Fowler (Crew Chief) and Captain Dale Elzey (Pilot). The crash was considered a result of a SAS systems failure. The aircraft landed starboard nose down, then fell off of the deck of the USS Saipan into the North Sea off the coast of Bodo, Norway. The back half of the aircraft was recovered on the scene, although the nose of the aircraft was believed to have sank to the bottom. The Co-Pilot Lt. Mauzey and a new Crew Chief survived, both with injuries
