RIYADH, Saudi Arabia, Sept. 15 (AP) --A Saudi Arabian Air Force transport plane caught fire and plunged into the desert near Medina last night, killing all 89 soldiers and crew members aboard, the Defense Ministry said today. [ END OF FIRST PARAGRAPH ]

AT 16, BANDAR YEARNED to fly the combat jets of the Royal Saudi Air Force and was sent off to the British Royal Air Force College at Cranwell, Lincolnshire, from which he graduated in 1969. He completed his flight training in San Antonio. The crash landing of his F-5 interceptor in 1977 gave him back problems that have plagued him ever since. But it did not deter him from reaching proficiency in the cockpit of the F-15, the ultimate status symbol for a Saudi fighter pilot.

FEEDBACK

The crew did indeed run out of fuel, which was said to be as a result of refusing to refuel from a USAF female tanker crew. The crew elected then to fly to an alternate base at lower altitude thus burning more fuel, ultimately running out a few kilometres short.
The aircraft remains were collected and put onto a flatbed for about two years when someone came up with the idea of making it into a gate guardian.
Aircraft 6DA765 is now mounted outside the main entrance to King Abdul Azziz Air Base, Dhahran Saudi Arabia.  

in email 3rd January 2009

 

".   .   .   There was a story going around at the time that the crew had attempted a landing in the desert, run up the side of a sand dune and were airborne again.... Photos I saw at the time show it reasonably intact with a trail of bits and pieces behind it, including the undercarriage. The nose had taken a beating and the seats had fired, which seems to confirm the story to an extent. I was with the FTC there at the time and we were given permission to remove items for training purposes; the aircraft itself was cosmetically restored and put on a pole outside the main gate of the airbase, where I imagine it is there till this day.   .   ."
