    What is up with the canopy in the top picture? Also his face looks bruised and a band-aid on his nose?

      Chris,

      Just came across this web page. The pilot is my father, who passed away in 1984. I know he broke his canopy during a refuel over TX. Not sure about the cut other than it happened during accident. I do know the band aid was actually to prevent rubbing of his oxygen mask on the bridge of his nose and not related to the accident.

    Chris,

    Have been doing some research and determined that at the time of this flight May 13, 1955, my father Jack Bryant was with the 452 FDS at Foster AFB, TX.
