Bad weather slowed search efforts, but is most likely not a factor as it would have been above the weather. The pilot, Major Gregory C. Martineac, did not eject, and was killed. The wreckage of the aircraft was found lying in four feet of mud. Crash was probably caused by G-LOC (G-induced Loss Of Conciousness).
