Recent discussions with former AAB staff (4) has questioned this incident. It was posted to 2/28/70 accident but it is clearly a separate incident that happened in 1969. No official reports exists.
Not that we wanted to add another to the list.
It was only 51 years ago but memory... a little rusty.
