Good morning everyone.
Sorry I haven't responded in a few days. We are at our busiest time of the year at work so I haven't had much free time.
I did print off the Standard Form 180 today and plan to send it in and see what I can get back from his service records.
I did speak to my dad this weekend about it and got a few more tid bits of information.
I was incorrect about him being in the Airforce. Turns out he was in the Navy.
My dad thinks the crash took place in the mid to late 60's. This would place it after the Gary Powers incident and would explain why it would have
been kept super hush hush. After already having 1 spy pilot shot down and captured, the US government would definitely not want to have another on
their hands after the "agreement" they would no longer fly spy planes over Russia.
We believe he would have retired in the late 60's or early 70's. The reason for this is that my dad bought a boat from him before he passed away. The
boat was a 1972 and Blaine stated that he bought the boat after he retired from service.
I will keep updating as I get more information.
