14dec78 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. Due to remote location repairs were not feasible so aircraft was disassembled and trucked out
