The site of a long forgotten fatal C-9A crash was found by 932nd Airlift Wing historian, Master Sgt. Gerald Sonnenberg. Mid-September in southern Illinois is typically a mix of cool mornings and comfortably warm, sunny days as summer comes to a close and ushers in the beginning of fall. Farmers are busy harvesting the hundreds of square miles of corn fields surrounding Scott AFB, Illinois. It was one of those days 45 years ago on Sept. 16, 1971, when one of the Air Force's newer C-9A Nightingales crashed just off base, killing a unit member, as noted in a separate story by Master Sgt. Sonnenberg. (U.S. Air Force photo by Maj. Stan Paregien)
