    „On November 13 [sic], while men were refuelling one of the new E’s we had just received, fire started from a source or cause not positively determined and the entire plane and equipment was lost.“

    Robert E. Thacker, interview with J. Michael Wenger, 14 August 2004, p.1.

    Additionally, this incident did not occur at Ft. Douglas, which was the location where the crews were quartered. Rather, the incident occurred nine miles to the west on the other side of Salt Lake City at the municipal airport, which was the operating base of the 88th Reconnaissance Squadron.
