    1978-12-1414dec78 splashed in the Gulf of Mexico due to a generator fire. Safely landed and evacuated. She later rolled over due to sea state. ARSC rebuilt and she flew again. Enroute to Davis Monthan AFB in 1992 for the bone yard A/C had a failed torque meter filter bowl and forced to land near Ft. Bragg on Mendicino shore.

    I was an aircrewman on this mission - PO2 Collins. Coast Guard Air Station Sitka
    Sad to say the museum said coast guard colors werent for them so they sprayed it with a crappy cammo scheme and took off external parts to make it look like a USAF Jolly Green
