YUKLA 27 AMERICAN WHEAT

The Sentry was being operated by the 962nd Airborne Air Control Squadron and was preparing to go on a training sortie with the callsign Yukla 27. The aircraft was to depart from runway 06 and was waiting while a Hercules transport aircraft took off. With its crew unaware that the Hercules had disturbed a flock of Canada geese, the Sentry lined up and started its departure roll, as it rotated No. 1 and No. 2 engine ingested the birds. The crew started to turn to the left to dump fuel and return to the runway, after the aircraft reached 250 feet it descended and crashed into a hilly, wooded area. MORE

    It’s great to see you have one of my old AWACS repping. Any chance you can brew an Indy08 (independence) for the MC12 liberty crew that went down in Kandahar 2013?

      Lauren, I do have plans for that crew. I will be getting around to it after the first of the year. Im assuming you are following Callsign on face book?
