Shortly after this Tu-16 buzzed a U.S. Navy ship, he flew too low and, in showing off, crashed. The next photo is from a U.S. helicopter launched to look for survivors. I bought this series of photos from at the U.S. Navy Naval Photographic Center. Their catalog numbers at the time were (among others where I had to remount the photos and have lost the numbers) K 49012, K 49014 and so forth.

By the time the Navy helicopter was airborne, this is what they saw of the Tu-16 as the approached the site of the wreck. I bought this series of photos from at the U.S. Navy Naval Photographic Center. Their catalog numbers at the time were (among others where I had to remount the photos and have lost the numbers) K 49012, K 49014 and so forth.

By the time the helicopter arrived at the site, only steam and smoke remained. On the Internet it states the accident was in 1968, although I thought it was in the 1970s.
