MY DAD PAUL E MAYER USED TO TEST THESE BETWEEN '56 AND '58 STATIONED AT PAX AND NEW RIVER. HIS LAST FLIGHT ENDED IN A CRASH INTO THE POTOMAC WITH BILL QUICK IN DEC. 1958 RESULTING IN A BROKEN BACK. BUT DESPITE THE BROKEN BACK, PULLED SEVERAL CREW OUT OF THE WATER TO AWAIT RESCUE THE NEXT DAY AS NO ONE KNEW THEY WERE IN THE WATER UNTIL A PASSING BOAT HEARD THE SCREAMS.
