On June 11, 1982, Whiteman AFB, lost six Airmen after their UH-1F Iroquois helicopter crashed in a rural area 30 miles south of Kansas City.
The two pilots from Detachment 9 of the 37th Aerospace Rescue and Recovery squadron, and four security policemen, from the 352nd Missile Security Squadron were providing security for a routine Air Force convoy transporting weapons system from Whiteman to a launch silo near Passaic, Mo. At the time, the UH-1 helicopter was one of four assigned to a military unit responsible of monitoring 50 of the Whiteman area missile silos.
