I was a kid growing up in Altus, Okla., at the time. Lots of my neighborhood buddies parents were AF. I remember Altus was a SAC base with B-52's and KC135's and I think maybe a few B-47's. I can still remember one night being nearly shook out of bed by an explosion and a bright flash of light. The next morning we learned that a B52 had crashed just north of Altus. Anyone out there with any info on this? I have wondered about it since I was a kid. I still remember me and my running buddies talking about it, we all thought of the crew as heroes. Best I can recall the pilot was the only one whom survived.

Altus AFB

Hey, wanna thank you for the link. Went to it and spent sometime there. I was amazed at the number of B52 crashes in the late 50's and into the 60's.
