Major Mills, from Baytown, Texas, son of Rex Mills, and husband of Bobbie Mills, was one of 16 airmen who perished when U.S Air Force KC-97G Stratofreighter #52-2711 struck Gray Mountain, 40 miles north of Flagstaff, Arizona, during a flight originating from Walker Air Force Base in New Mexico.

The aerial refueling tanker was on a mapping and surveying flight over the Arizona desert and southwest to observe and note route hazards for low-level, high-speed B-47 Stratojet training flights.

The aircraft was last observed heading northwest from Winslow and entering heavy cloud cover. Shorty after, it made a wrong turn into the mountainside.

The crewmembers killed aboard were:

Harold D Shumard

Charles D Dees

Donnie G Castor

Richard W Noel

James E Hicks

Ronald E Ruble

David A Whitmore

John G Schardong

Richard D Taylor

Sherman E Woods

Irving L Olstein

Milton G Poole

Wilbur K Abney

David G Morris

Robert R Ferguson
