24 June 1994. At Fairchild Air Force Base, Boeing B-52H-170-BW Stratofortress, 61-0026, call sign Czar Five Two, flown by Lieutenant Colonel Arthur Alan (“Bud”) Holland, impacted the ground with a 95° angle of bank and 150 knots indicated air speed.

The B-52, a fraction of a second before it crashed. Co-pilot McGeehan's escape hatch, jettisoned during his attempt to eject, is visible near the tip of the vertical stabilizer.

The B-52 stalled, fell to the ground and exploded, killing Holland and the three other field-grade officers on board the aircraft. In addition, one person on the ground suffered injuries during the accident, but survived.

The subsequent investigation concluded that the crash was attributable primarily to three factors: Holland's personality and behavior; USAF leaders' delayed or inadequate reactions to earlier incidents involving Holland; and the sequence of events during the aircraft's final flight

The leadership failed everyone involved in that accident. Holland should've never been inside that cockpit. Worst of it all, the families of the crews were there watching the whole catastrophe unfold. You can hear them cry in agony in that infamous footage of the crash that's been on the internet basically since forever. May the flight crew rest in peace.
