Two Were Flying A Yak-52
Two California Air National Guard officers were killed Monday
when the Yakovlev Yak-52 they were flying went down near Redlands
Municipal Airport in California.
The officers have been identified as 27-year-old Capt. Joseph M.
Gautheir, and 29-year-old Capt. Amanda K Herrington. Both
were stationed at March Air Reserve Base, where they flew Predator
MQ-1 reconnaissance UAVs. The Riverside, California
Press-Enterprise reports that both were on active duty with the
163rd Reconnaissance wing. Gautheir lived in Riverside. Herrington
lived in Apple Valley, CA.
Gautheir was the registered owner of the Yak. It went down at
1253 local time in the vicinity of the Seven Oaks Dam. The airplane
was performing aerobatic maneuvers when the accident occurred.
The single engine Yak-52 was built in 1985, but aircraft of its
type had been used as basic aerobatic trainers in Soviet-bloc
nations since the 1970's.
