Thor was hit by AAA fire 4 days before Christmas. Continued flying under control even though fuel was leaking into the cargo compartment from a damaged crossfeed manifold. Two crew members were on the ramp to avoid the fuel reported to be inches deep. John Winningham IO/Scanner was seen leaving his crew position was on the way to the cockpit with a T.O. that was requested when the fuel ignited. The two crew on the ramp bailed out and the other14 died, including John Winningham. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for they are the meanest S-O-B's in the valley. Sierra Hotel Ghostriders. You rock!!!!
