    There was a great chapter written in a book called "Darker Shades of Blue: The Rogue Pilot" about this idiot. He should of been grounded years prior to this accident. Not only did he take out himself and the crew, but he was carrying a bird Colonel who was retiring - it was his last flight and he was supposed to be "hosed down" upon landing. His wife and family saw the whole thing....

    What a fricken dork. I mean what was the purpose of that at all. It took the guy more time to join the forum than to post that stupid as post.

    Some people's children have nothing better to do. That's why streetlamps
    get broken, tires get slashed, windows taken out with bb guns. You get
    my drift, I'm sure....

    It's really hard to watch that thing going in; you know exactly what's going through the mind of the guys onboard.

    This was an idiotic, stupid thing to have happened. Three LtCol's were
    aboard Czar 52, and 1 full Col, when it took a wave off from the tower
    while in the landing pattern. LtCol "Bud" Holland, the pilot made an
    extreme bank while at 250 feet altitude, the left wing hit a power line
    prior to crashing. LtCol Holland was Chief of the 92nd Bomb Wing
    Standardization and Evaluation branch. Co Pilot was LtCol Mark McGeehan,
    and Col Robert Wolff was aboard as a safety observer. This was to be his
    last flight in a B-52. His family were watching as the plane crashed.
    The Radar-Navigator position was filled by LtCol Ken Huston, the 325th BMS Ops Officer.

    There were several attempts to have LtCol Holland "grounded" prior to this
    flight..... all unsuccessful for his "hot-dogging".

    A fellow pilot said that Bud Holland's lifetime ambition was to roll the B-52 !
