  • Brave Pilot and Warrior

    Capt. Albasio was co pilot on a Boeing B-52D-80-BO Stratofortress which crashed on take off from Anderson AFB, Guam on July 27 1969, killing all six crew members. Crash happened about the time of rotation for take-off. 56-0630 was airborne only briefly. The official explanation of 'wing failure' is an understatement. The right wing of the aircraft came off the fuselage, it separated from the bomber about the time it rotated and began to fly. Among the dead were Crew:
    Pilot/Commander: Capt Edward William Wyatt USAF killed.
    Co-pilot:Capt John Anthony Albasio USAF killed.
    Nav: Capt Donald Joseph Maccio USAF killed.
    Rad/Nav: Capt Edward Anthony Miskowski USAF killed.
    EWO: 1st/Lt Gary Paul Leach USAF killed.
    AG: T/Sgt Clinton Eugene Tibbetts USAF killed.

    Dear Captain John Anthony Albasio, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, Sir

    Curt Carter
