It was 56 years ago yesterday when a C-130 creashed into a mountain in Senja, Norway, and 7 crew died. One was a fellow student and graduate from my tech school class in 1965 in Amarillo, Tx. His name was Jerry Myers and there was not a nicer "kid" (we were around 19) than he was. He was tall and had an accent that went with his nature. I often look back at the graduation photo and there he stands in the back row and wish we could sit at the table and shoot the bull with Jim Mathwig and Ed DiNicola. Ken Felty 3343rd Sch Sq.

I had hoped to hear by now from someone who knew the names and status for sure of two airmen in the photo. Back row in the middle and front row on the left. I'm pretty sure Dennis White is front row left. Internet search turns up a lot of Whites as it is common. If that is Gary Game in the back row middle, I can't find him on the net as Game comes up with a lot of baseball or football responses. If anyone has any information on them please post a reply. Thanks. Ken Felty USAF 64-73.
