yepper, that's the one. pilots name was vaden. hence the call sign of darth. there was a big stink. we did an airshow/dependants cruise and one of my crewmen wanted his wife to watch him fly. the choice was, he flew with no dependants or no fly with dependants. that accident changed the way the navy did some things. mike
