  8 / 1958 --- While still TDY at KI Sawyer AFB late in the evening of 26 Aug 58, and early in the morning of 27 Aug 58, all available fighters were scrambled to participate in the continuation of Project WEXVAL against SAC. A form of ice fog (vertical sight OK, horizontal sight very limited) moved in over KI Sawyer to create a landing mess. Capt. Bob Crouch and Capt. Myrle Schuder were the earliest pilots to return and before the ice fog became unmanageable. 1st/Lt. Charlie Kapsa and 1st/Lt. Bob Cain were caught in a situation where their fuel reserves forced them to try and land at KI Sawyer in the early morning hours. Cain’s landing attempt at 0230 took him thru tree tops off to the side of the runway. He landed safely on his 3rd attempt in a very damaged F-102A (FC-499). Kapsa landed at 0315 to the side of the runway as best he could in case unknowns were on the runway. His right side landing gear strut was heavily damaged with the nose on the ground. Both pilots were OK. Two other planes landed at the civilian airport at Escanaba, MI. Another two landed at Mitchell Field in Milwaukee even though they were told to land at another location. As explained to me, the lights of Mitchell Field reflecting upward were hard to ignore. An unknown number, possibly 8-10 landed at Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada including Billy Minter.

13-04-'61 F-102 56-1044 During night intercepts over the North Sea (coast of province Zeeland) the fighter sufferered a fire control malfunction and put a wingtip through the cockpit of a RNLAF Hawker Hunter. A small screw came loose and caused a range potentiometer to stop showing decreasing range and the pilot thought he wasn't still closing on his target because his range circle on his scope wasn't decreasing in size. The fighter returned to base without realizing he had collided with another aircraft even though he was missing a couple of feet off one wing tip. Unfortunately the Dutch pilot (First Lieutenant van de Gaag) was killed in the collision. The Dutch pilot and his plane, in spite of long search operation, were never found. The Hawker Hunter (N-260) was part of the 326 squadron which was stationed at Soesterberg AB. An additional footnote: When the F-102 landed it was noted that one ejection seat pin was installed. If necessary, the pilot would not have been able to eject.

FEEDBACK

The 8 February 1964, a/c 56-1344 also belonged to the .  We also had lost a F-102 the summer of 1963 with that was never found.

 

 I was flying as target on the mission with Fred Boutz, along with Howie Bronson, a classmate of Fred’s from the academy. Fred Reimers in another F-102 and had made a wing takeoff with Boutz and then split up for the intercepts.  Since we were using datalink communications there were never any radio calls to indicate a problem.  We found Fred the next afternoon across the ridge from where the a/c had hit.  I was flying in an C-119 as an observer when we found the crash site and I just happened to glimpse his body by accident as we flew low across the ridgeline.  It took a team of mountain climbers to get him out.

 

The comment by Rick Taylor about the F-102 dead stick at Goose Bay is funny. We had two while I was there, so it could have been either Col. “Buddy” Hayden or Maj. Rod Davis. Sounds like Col. Hayden.

F-102's Unmanned Journey

A UNITED STATES AIR FORCE F-102 Delta

Dagger flew for more than an hour unmanned, after the pilot, Maj D. Feltey, ejected at 12,000ft over Missouri last week. It passed over the towns of Clinton and Warsaw escorted by two other F-102s, the pilots of which courageously flew in close formation with the pilotless aircraft in order to guide it by altering the pressure distribution round its wings. After clearing the populated areas the two escorting F-102s withdrew, reporting that  the runaway had gone into a left turn after passing through clouds at 6,OOOft, and crashed in open country.

  Rick Taylor: I was a SAC (KC-135) "weenie" at "The Goose" from '65 to '67. One of my jobs was to man a Euclid tow tractor during "scrambles" by the 59th, and during "Crash Alert" landing evolutoins. During the summer of '66, one 59th pilot crash- landed his F-102 on the runway, went over the windscreen, and ran up to my Euclid. He looked up at me and said, "Rough Landing, son!" I was an A2C back then, but I've never forgotten that moment. Anyway, I like the site, and the pics. Lots of memories for me, too, here. Best regards to all of you who served in the 59th. You all deserve a pat on the back for thde job you did. Richard (Rick) Taylor Gundogsnorth@netscape.net M/Sgt. USAF Retired

  One Deuce was shot down during an escort mission over Laos by a North Vietnamese MiG-21 on 3 February 1968, the pilot, Lieutenant Wallace Wiggins, being killed. The F-102s scored no air-to-air kills themselves. There are tales that they performed some ground attacks, using FFARs or even Falcons, but the Deuce was generally unsuited to the attack mission. A total of 15 F-102s was lost in the conflict; sources are confused as to the number shot down, destroyed on the ground, or lost in accidents.
