Beaver, Air Force Sgt. Dennis D. (Military Notes - 1973)

Air Force Sgt. Dennis D. Beaver, whose wife, Peggy, is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Wissell, Rt. 2 Loyal, has been selected to participate with the Strategic Air Command (SAC) in Royal Air Force strike command bombing and navigation competition in England, April 29, through May 5.

Sgt. Beaver, an instrument systems equipment specialist with the 410th Bomb Wing from K. I. Sawyer AFB, Mich., will help provide support for his B-52 Stratofortress bomber crew flying in the competition. Four B-52 crews will be competing and will fly their mission ns from Marham RAF Station.

Each crew will fly two missions during the competition. The first will be a day mission, which will include two low-altitude simulated bomb runs and the second will be a night mission with two high-altitude simulated bombs and one celestial navigation leg.

SAC units, competing in their seventh Royal Air Force event, will be after their fourth straight Blue Steel Trophy - awarded to the crew with the best combined bombing and navigation score - and their second consecutive electronics trophy, given to the best navigation crew.

Sgt. Beaver is a 1969 graduate of Loyal High School.
