CDI: The aircraft crashed near a trailer camp occupied by 200 service families. The explosion of 10-12 500 lb conventional explosive bombs shattered more than half of the fifty automobiles and trailers, blasted a crater 20 yards across and six feet deep and was felt 30 miles away. The fire could be seen for 65 miles. There were also 60 people hurt.
Fairfield Suisun AFB would go on to be renamed Travis AFB in honor of Brigadier General Robert F. Travis who died in the crash.
