This was one of the commanders aircraft of the 1st FW and Langley at the time. It was transferred to the 57th FS af Keflavik in late 1985, but crashed in North Atlantic Jan 2, 1986. It was the only fatal accident for the 57th since January 22, 1973, when F-102A 56-1321 crashed into the ocean about 30 km (17 NM) from Keflavik. That brought an end to 58 months of accident free flying for the 57th. It then went to have an accident free period of flying F-4Cs and Es.
