After six years in Germany I came back and had two goals. To learn to speak English [well] again and to drive 55 mph.
The North Sea,22 NOV 1975- Captain Jim Evans (33), pilot and Lt George Kuprian (29), WSO flying an F-4D Phantom II (66-0256) call sign “Trest One” were conducting air combat training over the North sea, 60 to 80 miles east of Great Yarmouth. Nearest…” (Great Yarmouth is a coastal town in Norfolk, east England). Trest Two was flown by Frank Chuba. Trest Three was flown by Ed Daniel. The aircraft was assigned to the 492nd TFS (48th TFW), RAF Lakenheath, UK.
Came across this just shy of Halloween. However while stationed at Hahn AB and living near Morbach, I was at more than one cocktail party where this was discussed.
I vividly remember the day of the crash. The weather was very bad that day. The first sortie was recalled and we were able to refuel only two aircraft before fueling went on weather hold as well.
