“This is an OOPS record! On April 7, 1961, a Strategic Air Command B-52 was shot down by an F-100 airplane from the New Mexico Air National Guard. The B-52 was piloted by Captain Donald Blodgett and Captain Ray Nobel. During a simulated attack from two F-100s flown by First Lieutenant James Van Scyoc and Captain Dale Dodd, the outer missile of two Sidewinders under the port wing of Van Scyoc's aircraft fired due to moisture short circuiting the firing mechanism. The pilots and electronics warfare officer survived, but three other crew members were killed.”
