Tribute to Airmen: Air Force Special Operations Command dedicated an area of its Melrose Bombing Range at Cannon AFB, N.M., March 14 to the memory of the crew of Jockey 14, an AC-130 gunship that crashed off the coast of Kenya 14 years ago. The aircraft was supporting UN forces in Somalia March 4, 1994, when it had an in-flight explosion and crash landed. Eight of the aircraft’s 14 aircrew were lost in the mishap. The area at the range is now known as “the Jockey 14 live-impact area,” AFSOC said in a release March 20.
