USAF Aircraft Crash. Stationed at Williams AFB, Chandler, AZ

Corporal Gelino was a radio operator aboard U.S. Air Force B-50 Superfortress #46--0020. He was killed when the bomber exploded in flight less than one hour after departing Davis-Monthan Air Force Base and crashed near the Union Pacific railroad siding station called Hyder, west of Gila Bend, Arizona. Twelve Air Force servicemen perished but two survived when they were blown from the fuselage and were able to parachute safely to the ground.
