A-29 down at Holloman

Recommended Posts

 Seeing word on Facebook that Holloman is reporting a mishap with a "manned aircraft".  No words on type, nationality, or condition of crew.

Heard from a friend of mine (and active board member here) about the crash and that, luckily, the person with minor injuries was another mutual friend of ours.

He’s a truly great American & thank god he made it out safe.

Fingers crossed for the other crew member.
