The aircraft was landing on runway 12 at Offutt and windshear was noted as a causal factor during the accident investigation. The old Martin Bomber plant building causes significant changes in winds when landing on runway 12. Both crewmembers were copilots in the 343rd SRS flying the RC-135. They were flying the T-38 under the ACE (Accelerated Copilot Enrichment) program in SAC that was designed to give copilots more proficiency flying time.
