Airmen's Memorial Planning 30th Anniversary Celebration, Input Requested
July 27, 2022
On the night of November 30, 1992, 9 miles north of Harlem, Montana 13 airmen were lost when two C-141B Starlifter Cargo Planes collided. The airmen were stationed at McChord Air Force Base in Great Falls and were on a low-level refueling exercise. The tragic event was covered nationally, and the country mourned the lives of those Airmen killed while serving their country. The response from the residents of Harlem and the surrounding communities was memorable, efficient and remarkable by what they were able to put together to show their support for the Airmen and their families.
