WHAT'S HAPPENING

Digging Up the Past
Robins AFB home to 68-year old crash site

The swamp is slowly burying the metal remains. Sixty-eight years ago, seven people were killed when a UC-45 crashed shortly after takeoff from Robins Air Force Base.

The airplane was returning to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base with its crew of inspectors. Shortly after 9 p.m. on Feb. 13, 1947, it crashed into the swamp just north of the runway which at that time ran from north to south.

Six military men and one civilian died in the crash. The bodies of the men were all recovered. Lt. Col. Gilbert E. Layman, Capt. William W. Whalen, Lt. Col. Robert A. Zaiser, 1st Lt. Laverne W. Gonyer, Tech. Sgt. Austin E. Casebier, civilian T. R. Billings and Maj. Charles H. Greiner were those who perished in the accident.

“The force of the impact ripped off the propeller,” said Bill Paul, collections manager at the Museum of Aviation. “It was moving fast when it hit to tear it up like it did.”

B-29 similar to Enola Gay on display at Museum of Aviation

Museum of Aviation visitors can now get a close-up view of what crew members of the Enola Gay were looking at when they changed history.

The Enola Gay was a B-29 Superfortress that dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan.

The museum has long had a B-29 cockpit separate from the full B-29 that sits in the Scott Hangar. The cockpit is at floor level below the giant bomber, and with its panoramic windows, visitors can get a full view of the inside, including the switch the Enola Gay bombardier would have flipped to drop the bomb.
