The Air Guard, MAFFS, and Herk communities (and world) lost three great heroes on Jan 23, 2020.  Captain Ian McBeth (Lt Col, MT ANG), First Officer Paul Hudson ((Lt Col (Ret) Marine Corps)), and Flight Engineer Rick DeMorgan, Jr. (18 year USAF FE vet) perished while fighting the fires in Australia. 

Personally, I was a Navigator in the Montana ANG with Ian for three years and I can't think of any pilot who I'd rather go into combat with.  

Please, do not speculate on this thread as to the cause of the crash.  I just want this thread to be a memorial for those who knew any of these three aviators.  We will find out about the details of the crash in due time.
