The four men in the Dec. 12 crew, part of a squadron of 60 aviators at Diego, were flying their first mission together. "Rooster," the copilot, 31, was out of Mountain Home Air Force Base in Idaho, as was Allen "Lost" Griffis, 30, the defensive-systems officer, charged with watching for enemy radar "painting" the B-1, and with controlling electronic countermeasures. The two were acquainted.
